TD Ameritrade Awarded Highest Rating Of 4 ½ Stars; Named Best For Novices And Long-Term Investing

TD Ameritrade Holding Corporation (NYSE:AMTD) today is pleased to announce that its brokerage subsidiary TD Ameritrade, Inc. (“TD Ameritrade”), has been named “Best for Novices” and “Best for Long-term Investing” by Barron’s 2014 online broker survey, published in its Mar. 15, 2014 issue.

The annual study surveyed the capabilities of 20 online brokers in eight categories from the perspective of the wealthy, active trader: Trading Technology, Usability, Mobile, Range of Offerings, Research Amenities, Portfolio Analysis & Reports, Customer Service & Education, and Costs. TD Ameritrade received an overall rating of 4 ½ stars (out of a possible 5 stars) and received the highest point total in the Research Amenities and Range of Offerings categories.*

The study also ranked brokers in six sub-categories, naming a “best” in each. TD Ameritrade received top billing in:

The broker was also named one of the top five best in three other sub-categories: Best for Frequent Traders, Best for In-Person Service and Best for Options Traders. And received distinction as a leader in investor education.

“We’re proud of the recognition, but never satisfied with the status quo,” said Steve Quirk, senior vice president of the trader group, TD Ameritrade. “Being client centric is part of our culture that drives everything we do. We never stop improving on the offerings for all clients – from the novice investor looking for education, to the long-term investor focused on retirement or the sophisticated trader using options as part of their overall strategy. Our tailored platforms and top-notch service ensure our clients receive what they want when they want it.”

These accolades are just the latest in a series of third-party acknowledgements for TD Ameritrade’s offerings in 2014. In recent months Kiplinger’s Personal Finance named TD Ameritrade the “Best Broker for ETFs,” and Stockbrokers.com named TD Ameritrade the #1 overall broker.
