Reasons to Invest
Proven track record

We deliver long-term shareholder value through measured growth and financial discipline. We choose to play in areas that we can win and constantly explore ways to challenge the status quo. Our ROE is our north star and we have consistently delivered on this metric, averaging an ROE of +16%* over the last 10 years.

*This non-GAAP adjusted measure is as of October 31, 2023 and is calculated by taking the average of the last forty quarters’ ROE. Each quarter’s ROE is defined as net income available to common shareholders as a percentage of weighted average common equity outstanding during the period.

Leading Canadian digital bank

We offer Canadians the chance to get more out of everyday dollars by earning high interest and not paying fees for everyday banking. We serve those who are looking to do things differently and aren’t getting all that they need from their traditional bank. The trend is catching on: more than 400,000 (and growing) Canadians have opened an EQ Bank account.

Innovation

We are the first Bank in Canada to host its core banking system in the cloud, enabling scalability for our personal and commercial banking solutions. We operate using a strategic partnership model that allows us to create and collaborate with fintechs and other tech-enabled organizations to offer borrowing and lending solutions for people and businesses.

Fortress balance sheet

We are guided by our prudent risk appetite and benefit from our differentiated underwriting expertise, and as a result, we operate with very low credit losses. Our loan book is almost 100% secured, and we hold first credit position on all loans. We have made drastic enhancements to our sources of funding over the last 5 years and continue to diversify our funding stack through EQ Bank, covered bonds and more.
