take control of your investments

In addition to the products and services available through Sunova Financial Services, we are pleased to offer an online option that can help complement and grow your savings.


For seasoned investors with a strong understanding of the investment options out there and looking to try out their investing and trading skills, a Credential Direct® online brokerage account will allow you to trade your own stocks and funds whenever you want from the comfort of your own home.


And the good news is there is nothing complicated about investing with Credential Direct®. The site is simple and easy to understand – from logging in to placing your first trade, help is always there when you need it.
