GREENWICH, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Interactive Brokers (Nasdaq: IBKR), an automated global electronic broker, today announced the launch of fractional shares trading for Canadian stocks and ETFs. Clients of Interactive Brokers can now buy and sell fractional shares of all stocks and ETFs listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange and on CBOE Canada, plus eligible US and European stocks and ETFs.
Fractional shares give investors a simple way to build a balanced portfolio and invest in shares regardless of the share price. With fractional shares, investors can divide investments among more stocks to achieve a better-diversified portfolio and put small cash balances to work quickly to maximize potential returns.
“Fractional shares trading continues to be an easy and economical way for investors of any level to construct or add to their portfolios,” said Steve Sanders, EVP of Marketing and Product Development at Interactive Brokers. “Fractional shares trading has been extremely popular for US and European stocks and ETFs, and we are excited to broaden our offering to include Canadian shares.”
To trade eligible Canadian fractional shares, clients can use a cash quantity order that lets clients place orders in a specific cash amount. Fractional shares will automatically be bought or sold if the cash amount does not line up with a whole number of shares.
