Equity Financial Trust Company was founded in 1990 as Equity Transfer Services Inc. to serve the business-to-business stock transfer market.
In 2006, we became a regulated trust company to provide our clients the flexibility to do deals within or outside a Trust structure. In 2011, we received approval from OSFI to issue retail deposits to the public, at which time we began our mortgage operations. In 2013, we sold our legacy stock transfer and corporate trust business to the TMX Group to focus exclusively on the residential mortgage market.
Equity Financial Holdings Inc trades on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol EQI.
