“We are here to help our clients develop as investors and traders, and education and client service are just as important as the innovation we continue to deliver,” said Steve Quirk, senior vice president of TD Ameritrade’s Trader Group. “Being named the best overall broker is great validation for the work we do every day, but we won’t stop trying to get better. We’ll continue to push the limits on what technology can do to make the markets more accessible and easier to navigate for new and experienced traders and investors.”
