I have established an Equity Trust account, how do I get started trading with ETC Brokerage?
ETC Brokerage Services offers stock, bond, and mutual fund trading to Equity Trust Company clients through an ETC Brokerage account. The process to get started is simple. Once you have opened an Equity Trust Company account you can then establish an ETC Brokerage account. When funds are available within your Equity Trust Company account you can then place trades (either online or by contacting an ETC Brokerage representative) that will be held within your ETC Brokerage account. The movement of funds from your Equity Trust Company account to your ETC Brokerage account to place trades is seamless and does not require any advanced notice prior to placing the trades. The total value of your brokerage account assets will be reflected within your Equity Trust Company account holdings. Individual brokerage asset holdings can be viewed through your ETC Brokerage online account login.
