The Desjardins Securities Elite Program: Transparent and comprehensive
The Desjardins Securities Elite Program involves a fee-based brokerage account where investment advisor commissions are replaced by a flat fee based on the value of your assets. Regardless of the type of account you choose, you'll be able to:
- Optimize the discussions you have with your advisor about your investments
- Better manage the cost of your investment advisor's services
- Get fee-related tax benefits
- Benefit from not paying certain management fees
And you'll no longer have to worry about paying commissions on each trade.
In addition to these advantages, you'll also have substantial privilegesFootnote 2:
- You can pay lower fees if you and a spouse or family member combine your assetsFootnote 2.
- As your assets grow, you might pay a lower rate on certain investment products.
According to your investor profile, you can pick one of three Elite Program options: Elite Basic, Elite Intermediate and Elite FLEXible. Your investment advisor can help you choose the option that's right for you. Each option comes with a specific number of commission-free trades.
