These data come from the Survey on Retail Securities Brokerage in Québec conducted by the Institut de la statistique du Québec. This survey was designed to measure the retail securities market in Québec and attempts to reveal the importance of the role played by the companies targeted.
Note: In the first quarter of 2015, the Institut added a new asset category in the questionnaire sent to survey respondents: exchange-traded funds. Having noticed an increase in the stock market value of these funds, the Institut believes that this addition will enhance the survey. However, this means that data for the current quarter are not directly comparable with data for the previous years. Indeed, it seems reasonable to assume that part of the funds invested in this asset category were previously included in another category, or even in several other categories by certain respondents. For this reason, we have initiated a new series of data that begins in 2015. However, historical data are available.
