Scottrade Opens New Investment Branch In Bradenton

Scottrade, an online investment firm, opened a Bradenton branch on March 8 at 1528 Cortez Road W. The new branch serves as a resource center for customers who prefer to handle their investments online and for those who prefer to use a traditional broker.

At the new branch, customers will be able to access resources ranging from online tutorials of Scottrade's website, to advice on individual accounts and opportunities to trade through an on-site stock broker.

"We are committed to making the trading process easier and as effective for the customer as possible," says Manager Brooks Vanderzee. "At our office, we can give people full demonstrations of how the website works, and when they get home they can call us with further questions. We want to make sure they have a fully supported, positive experience. And we do have traditional accounts available through a broker here on site."

Vanderzee foresees adding to his staff within the next year. "We'll absolutely be looking for new talent as the need develops and as the economy improves."

The Bradenton branch is one of 40 across Florida. Scottrade is one of the largest online investment firms providing self-directed customers access to trading at transaction rates as low as $7.

The new office will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, with after-hours support available from 7 a.m. until 11 p.m., Monday through Friday; 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Saturdays.
