Sharekhan Education & Research

>For research, I found Capital One Investing's coverage of equities, ETFs, and mutual funds to be very strong, thanks to their use of Morningstar as their primary provider. Although the broker purposely supports little more than 1,000 mutual funds for trading (focus on quality over quantity), I was impressed by the depth of research provided.

Sharekhan Customer Service

>Capital One Investing's phone customer service was consistently an enjoyable experience, and we were impressed. Reps were almost always enthusiastic, professional, and helpful. We were on hold for longer than one minute less than 20% of the time and the reps were clearly well trained, always making sure to conclude all calls on a warm closing note.

Sharekhan Closing Thoughts

>Capital One Investing shines in its ease of use; it performs well in research and customer service, but limits its offering of investments and tools desired by active stock and options traders.


>Capital One Investing should continue to thrive doing what it does best: offering a great solution for casual investors and those seeking automatic investments, as well as giving current Capital One 360 clients an easy way to access the markets.
