Firstrade Introduces New Streamlined Application Process
October 11, 2018

New York, October 11, 2018 - Firstrade Securities, a leading online brokerage firm, has made opening a new brokerage account even easier and more convenient than ever before. Now it’s possible for customers to begin trading the same day thanks to Firstrade’s new, streamlined application process.

Recently, Firstrade eliminated its commissions for stocks, options, ETFs and mutual funds, giving self-directed investors an opportunity to experience a full- premium services brokerage without the burden of commissions.

With a simple-to-use and fresh new look, an application that used to take upwards of 10 minutes to complete now takes just three minutes from start to finish. Many of the processes have been digitized and fully automated, such as e-signatures and instant verification. Funds can also be easily transferred.

“Our updated online application process lets new customers experience the Firstrade Advantage from the very start,” said John Liu, Firstrade’s chairman and chief executive officer. “This is just another example of our commitment to providing our customers with convenience, great technology and exemplary customer service.”
