Fidelity Website Highlighting Its “2016 Best Online Broker” Award.
I am glad that this, hard-to-miss, ‘splash’ appeared on my Fidelity logon screen this morning.
I had not heard that they had won this award. It was awarded by Barron’s who rated 16 firms in total. You can find the Barron’s article about this award here.
That Fidelity came in #1 does NOT surprise me in the slightest.
As far as I am concerned Fidelity has been the “Best Online Broker” 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016!
Yes, I am a huge fan of Fidelity and it isn’t as if I oblivious to other brokers. I used to be with Charles Schwab and still, on occasion, logon and use TDAmeritrade — albeit on behalf of a relative.
That Schwab came in #8 does not surprise me either. They used to be very good in the mid- to late 1990s. Then something drastic went wrong. TDAmeritrade at #4 is probably ‘right’ though I would contend that they could be higher — but not #1. They have really got their act together over the last 5 to 6 years.
