Debt Securities

The standard norm for trading debt securities is to include the commission to the broker (Desjardins Online Brokerage) within the price of the security. Thus, prices are increased during a purchase and reduced during a sale. This difference is known as a spread, and varies from one tenth of a basis point (0.1) to one and a half basis points (1.5) depending on the maturity date of the security. Yields displayed on our website reflect the spreads applied.

Apart from the commission paid to the broker (Desjardins Online Brokerage), the firm (Desjardins Securities) may also receive income resulting from the difference between the purchase price and selling price. This income is included in the purchase or sale price of the security.

Securities Offering

When the firm (Desjardins Securities) acts as an underwriter or agent in a securities offering, compensation is paid by the issuer to Desjardins Online Brokerage.

Currency conversion

In any transaction requiring currency conversion, the broker (Desjardins Online Brokerage) may earn, in addition to brokerage fees, income from the conversion. In such transaction, the firm (Desjardins Securities) acts as principal and uses a competitive conversion rate based on market buying and selling rates for the currency, with “currency conversion” and “income” included as separate parts. Any currency conversion is conducted at the rate in effect on the day of the transaction.
