National Bank Financial Group launches its brand new Retirement Guide

Montréal, 3 November 2008 -

National Bank Financial Group is proud to present its brand new Retirement Guide, designed specifically for people who want to learn more about retirement planning.  The Guide is divided into three sections: Understand, Plan and Act.

Understanding the issues surrounding retirement is the starting point for good planning.  By taking current and future situations into account, needs in key areas of a client’s life during retirement can be clearly identified.  A sound investment strategy must take into consideration all factors that could affect the achievement of the client’s goals.

After gaining an understanding of their needs and the related risks, clients move to the planning step.  At this point, they prepare or adjust their plans to make sure that their retirement projects can be realized.  To do this, they must clearly define their goals, project their current situation into the future, analyze the gaps, and identify the best solutions for their circumstances.

Finally, clients must act, that is, choose and apply the most appropriate solutions for their situation. This section of the Guide is divided into three age groups to reflect the different phases of an investor’s life.

The National Bank Financial Group Retirement Guide is available in electronic version at or in paper version at National Bank branches.
