As time goes on, the Scottrade products continue to grow and evolve. From the original brokerage firm that helped clients to trade and invest, now there’s portfolio guidance, personalized financial advice, commercial lending, and a database of independent Registered Investment Advisors for referral. Opening an account is easy, and the Knowledge Center and online tutorials help novices to get started trading confidently. In addition to brick and mortar branches across the United States, the online platform and smartphone apps allows trading from anywhere, including that hammock on the beach.
