Any comment, Questrade? Small print isn’t enough to inform the consumer. We’re used to seeing investment returns quoted after fees. Shouldn’t you do that too?@susanwillemsen

I was disappointed to see Questrade's ad in the Globe and Mail on Saturday. I am all for the headlines, but don't understand why they promote their performance pre-fee? They charge a portfolio management fee of .2-.25% and the portfolios have fund MERs. While its all likely to be quite modest compared to bank funds, WHY NOT show performance net of fees Questrade Financial Group? In order to compare my portfolio's performance to yours, I need to know your fees have been deducted from your returns. Because mine have. #feesmatter #consistencymatters
