What you need to know before opening a TD Trading Account

We want to make sure that you're comfortable with the risks of investing, so please remember that the value of your investments can go down as well as up and you may not get back all the money you put in.

If you're unsure about the suitability of a particular investment or think you need a personal recommendation, you should speak to a suitably qualified financial adviser.

Risks

Please remember that the value of your investments can fall as well as rise. You may get back less than you invested. All investments carry a varying degree of risk and it's important you understand the nature of these risks. Learn more
