"Overall financial services response times continued to worsen in 2018 and there is no longer a dominant industry as the decline in overall brokerage performances has allowed banking to rise to the top, posting 8 out of the 10 top firms" said Glenn LaCoste, President of Surviscor Inc. " It is clear that both credit unions and independent firms are out-dueling the big banks in both industries. Assiniboine and Qtrade should be complimented on their efforts " added Mr. LaCoste.
