Our Story

At the heart of every idea has been one very simple but powerful thing: a spark.

Filling a DIY Investing Void

Founded in 2011 in Vancouver, Canada, Sparx was built on the questions and concerns of various investors with vastly different trading knowledge and experiences. The overwhelming number of products, services, and materials available in the online brokerage space resulted in a clear need for an investing platform that provided reliable, straightforward data for successful trading strategies.

Our "X Factor"

Sparx set out with the vision of being a transparent and trustworthy source of information on the "tools of the trade,” helping DIY investors get started in the stock market, sift through and efficiently analyze the numerous opinions and products available, and make decisions about what best fits their needs.

Sparx Trading's Journey

Today, Sparx continues to strive to be a leader in providing valuable and accessible investing information on trading in Canada, keeping the needs of our users at the forefront of the solutions we provide.
