ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--E*TRADE Financial Corporation (NASDAQ: ETFC) today announced top accolades from Barron’s Best Online Brokers of 2020 review.

“E*TRADE effectively married its active and more mainstream investing elements with sophistication and ease,” said Matt Miller of Barron’s. “E*TRADE combines well-thought-out platform designs with valuable and intuitive research tools, such as an easy-to-use portfolio analysis.
