Trade Desk

The Manulife Securities dedicated Trade Desk facilitates all Canadian, U.S. and international equity and fixed income trades for advisors across Canada. The Trade Desk manages transactions of between $700 million and $1 billion in assets annually on all North American exchanges. In addition to providing guidance and support to the dealer's advisors and assistants, the Trade Desk processes all currency transactions for both Manulife Securities' IIROC and MFDA platforms.

Transitioning from MFDA to IIROC
