A Securities broker can:
- Buy and Sell individual stocks such as Google, Apple, and Royal Bank
- Buy and Sell Mutual Funds, ETFs, bond funds, and commodities
- Hold cash and wait for opportunities (unlike a mutual fund provider)
- Use trading techniques that independent individual traders may not utilize such as stop-losses and options.
- Open Registered and Non-Registered accounts and best allocate your assets to each one for future wealth growth.
