Investools and TD Ameritrade

Investools and TD Ameritrade share a commitment to educating investors. Both organizations believe knowledge is power—particularly when it comes to investing.

That’s why TD Ameritrade Holding Corp. acquired the thinkorswim group and Investools in 2009—in part, to provide premiere investor education products and tools to self-directed investors.

As a result of this affiliation, TD Ameritrade account holders can save on Investools education. Best of all, these benefits apply whether you're already a TD Ameritrade client or open a new account today.


Authorized Providers of Continuing Education

Since 1990, the National Registry of CPE Sponsors is a program offered by the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) to recognize organizations whose continuing professional education meets their high level of standards. As an approved program sponsor, Investools provides CPAs and other licensed professionals the opportunity to enhance their skills and earn CPE credits from Investools in-person workshops.

A Certified Financial Planner (CFP) receives extensive training in all aspects of financial planning. And when it comes to staying up-to-date, CFPs want to do the right thing for their clients, as well as themselves. That’s why Investools became a CFP® Board-Registered CE Sponsor—to offer Certified Financial Planners the opportunity to enhance their knowledge and earn over 100 credits.

Investools is also accredited by IACET, which describes itself as “the premier standard-setting organization for continuing education and training providers.” With this accreditation, Investools provides our students the confidence that our education rises to the "best in class" standard set for IACET Authorized Providers.

What our students are saying...

Irene J.

"I started learning and my confidence is much better now in managing my portfolio. I am much more risk conscious, which before I wasn't."

Clair L.

"Trading before Investools was uncomfortable, to be honest, because I wasn’t educated. I just made a decision based on the stock’s description. That’s the whole reason I signed up with Investools—So I can get better educated and make more educated decisions."

Mike D.

"Before I was just bouncing around. Now I have something I can grasp onto. I think the program is awesome. I highly recommend it."

Donna R.

"Before Investools, my investing decisions were haphazard. Now I've been very conscientious and trading almost every week."

Vince P.

"I used to just dump everything into mutual funds. Now, I'm my own active investor. I make all of my decisions based on rules and use Investools to help me be disciplined and consistent."

Andy D.

"If I didn’t have Investools, I wouldn’t be trading today. I wouldn’t even want to trade. What I’ve learned from Investools, and hopefully will to continue to learn, has made a difference in my day-to-day life."
