Brokerage Accounts

What is a Brokerage Account?

A brokerage account is an arrangement between an investor and a licensed brokerage firm that allows the investor to deposit funds with the firm and place investment orders through the broker. The broker carries out the transaction on the investor’s behalf and places the securities in the investor's brokerage account. These accounts allow the investor to purchase stocks, bonds, mutual funds, term deposits and other securities. FG Capital Markets offers competitive brokerage account fees and trade commissions, prompt and efficient trade execution services and expert analysis and advice on locally traded companies and offerings.
