TD Ameritrade Launches New Investor Education Platform

TD Ameritrade Holding Corporation (Nasdaq: AMTD) announced today that TD Ameritrade, Inc. has expanded its award-winning investor education curriculum and designed a new experience providing investors with a personalized learning path. TD Ameritrade's premium education - designed and delivered by a team of experienced educators - is free and available on-demand.

"Access to investment products and tools can only take you so far without knowledge and confidence. Anyone can download articles and books on investing, but what we've built is an actual learning experience with a guided, personalized path," said Lee McAdoo, managing director of Investor Education for TD Ameritrade.

TD Ameritrade's education center includes an in-depth curriculum and coaching from experienced educators in the financial industry. The education experience consists of a personalized learning path, designed for each type of investor - basic, intermediate, advanced - with a multichannel, step-by-step curriculum. Investors get relevant content to help expand their scope of knowledge and learning.

TD Ameritrade's education center delivers an experience that is a mix of conceptual learning with practical application and includes:
  • A robust library of quick hit, on-demand videos and step-by-step tutorials
  • Immersive curriculum presented by coaches with real investing experience
  • In-person events where education coaches can help put knowledge into action
  • Eight hours of interactive webcasts each day

Clients can access the full education center once logged in via, thinkorswim, or TD Ameritrade mobile. A significant amount of education content is also available to the public via and on Youtube, Amazon Echo Show and Facebook Messenger.

Additionally, the TD Ameritrade Network broadcasts 6 hours of live content 5 days a week with an archive of on-demand videos.

"Our objective to educate more investors led us to the decision to expand our education center and offer it to all investors, free of charge," said McAdoo. "By offering investors a guided path to greater financial literacy, whether they're new to investing or experienced, we're helping transform their lives and the lives of their families," continued McAdoo.

TD Ameritrade Network is brought to you by TD Ameritrade Media Productions Company. TD Ameritrade Media Productions Company and TD Ameritrade, Inc. are separate but affiliated subsidiaries of TD Ameritrade Holding Corporation.
