Why Place Trade?     Products & Services



Get Full Service Advice when you need it 


Manage all of your accounts in one great place!

We know that it can be frustrating to choose between getting advice from an experienced financial professional and making your own decisions when you want to.  We know that it can become an accounting nightmare at tax time when you are chasing down documentation or simply trying to keep track of what you have when your accounts are scattered about.  
We also know that you are looking for a fair price and that when you want financial advice you want it from someone with the experience required to meet your needs.  Not a rookie and not a computer screen.   

Experienced Advisors offer Full Service Advice

  • We do not have cookie cutter molds to churn out the same information for every client because we are not computers and we understand that every person is different and their investment needs are different.  Recommendations are suited to meet your goals and meet your individual risk tolerance level.

  • We do not "push product," hold inventory or make a market in investments and then push them out to clients under any circumstances.  

  • Place Trade does not offer any proprietary products or have sales contests or any other "encouragement" that might cause investment recommendations to be made outside of your best interest.  

  • Place Trade Financial professionals are free to make the recommendations that they believe are right for you without interference or unethical enticements to sway their recommendations.

Our clients range from totally independent online traders, to mutual fund and hedge fund traders as well as other financial institutions to individuals who only use full service financial professionals for advice.*  As our client you can choose either model or use both.  You only pay full service commission (starting as low as $15 per trade) when you use the services of our experienced financial experts.** 


No Need to hold Multiple Accounts 

At Place Trade there is no need to choose or have multiple accounts spread out all over town (or the country for that matter) because our clients truly have the ability to invest on their own terms!  You no longer have to have your full service account at one firm, your discount broker or online trading accounts with another firm and your international accounts with possibly still another firm.  You get it all with Place Trade!  



Place Trade offers clients the choice of how they want to invest  

Clients are able to get the advice that they desire and have no feeling of guilt among those that are hiding their online accounts from their full service advisors.  Place Trade financial professionals are here when you need them but never breathing down your neck when you don't!

* Please note that Place Trade financial professionals DO NOT give options advice. All options trades are placed by the client - online.
** Please note that any investments that are discussed with an advisor will be billed at the full service commission rate whether or not you place the trades online or they are entered by your personal advisor.  We spend a great deal of time planning and making appropriate recommendations for our clients and we would not be able to offer these services if our advisors are not fairly compensated.  Besides, with commissions as low as our rates are we believe that you will not find full service commission, matched with our experience, at another national brokerage firm.
