I've been a TD kid since I was a little guy and had my first little 'gold book' (who remembers those?) with them. I've kept with them ever since and they've grown with me as well.
One of the ways they keep up is making sure their customers have access to their services and during COVID having easier access remotely.
Sure, I've gotten those calls about 'what can we do to help' etc..., but having an app is way easier (who likes talking to people?).
The latest app they have is their GoalAssist which is set to help you with your investing portfolio and planning it out that matches your goals.
Have a look:
Put your investing goals in reach with new mobile app, TD GoalAssist TM
New service allows Canadians to plan, invest and monitor their financial goals with stock trading, commission-free TD ETFs, and no investment minimums or monthly fees.
TORONTO, October 27, 2020 – Investing just got a whole lot easier with the launch of TD GoalAssist. A first of its kind in Canada, TD GoalAssist is a new mobile app designed to help Canadians set financial goals and invest with confidence.
Through a simplified, guided app experience, users can build a goals-based investment plan and select investments to help them invest towards their goals. They can either choose to build their own portfolio using individual TD ETFs or stocks listed on the major North American exchanges or select a TD One-Click ETF Portfolio that most aligns with their goal and self-selected investor profile. TD ETFs, including TD One-Click ETF Portfolios can be traded commission-free. To help them stay on track towards reaching their goals, the app allows users to monitor and adjust their goals and portfolio on-the-go.
"We know investing can be intimidating and many Canadians may simply put off getting started as a result. We believe you shouldn't need a lot of money or expertise to start building your investing journey, which is why we created TD GoalAssist. This new mobile-only investing service is straightforward, uses plain language and is grounded in what our clients have told us they're looking for – goal planning, education and low cost," said Paul Clark, President, TD Direct Investing and EVP, TD Bank Group.
TD GoalAssist will include the following key features:
- No minimums or monthly fees
- Unlimited commission-free trades on TD ETFs, including TD One-Click ETF Portfolios
- Trade stocks listed on major North American exchanges (TSX, TSXV, NYSE, NASDAQ, AMEX; CBOE) for $9.99 per trade
- Free self-directed goals-based investment planning with ability to monitor progress
- Educational videos to build foundational investing knowledge and provide a guided experience
- A team of specialists available for support
- Digital opening of three account types (cash, RSP and TFSA) in Canadian dollar currency
"We know a lot has changed in our lives this year as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. From an investing perspective, we've seen a significant increase in demand for online investing and more people trying investing on their own," Clark adds. "TD GoalAssist could not come at a better time as Canadians are looking for an easy and affordable way to invest."
TD clients can conveniently view their TD GoalAssist balances through their TD online banking and transfer money seamlessly between accounts. TD GoalAssist is powered by Canada's largest self-directed online brokerage, TD Direct Investing. Canadians can start taking control of their financial wellbeing and invest on their terms today.
