A lot of research goes into our reviews. We believe our research methodology is the most comprehensive in the industry. On top of our own research, we also gather reviews from our internal “Seed Trusted Websites” and aggregate them. Through this we put together, what we believe is, the toughest review methodology in the industry.
How do we research and test?
We have 7 primary categories that we research during our testing:
- Fees & Commissions
- Types of Investments Available
- Platform & Security
- Customer Service
- Mobile Experience
What is our “Seed of Trusted Websites” list?
On top of our own research and testing of online brokers, we also use what we our “seed of trusted websites”. Through our own research and background checks, we compiled a list of seed websites we use to aggregate broker ratings and include this score in our final rating. This enables us to have the most comprehensive reviews. Period.
