E*TRADE Financial Corporation (NASDAQ: ETFC) today announced that it has completed the acquisition and conversion of approximately one million retail brokerage accounts from Capital One Financial Corporation for a purchase price of approximately $109 million.
“We are thrilled to welcome these new customers and to show them the best of E*TRADE, including our broad product suite, professional-grade tools, and exceptional service, said Karl Roessner, Chief Executive Officer of E*TRADE Financial. “This is a fantastic opportunity to materially broaden our footprint, efficiently adding a large number of customers to our highly scalable platform. We are already hard at work to deepen our engagement with these new customers and ensure their experience with us is seamless and first-class.
