Montreal, 28 April 2014 -

National Bank Securities Inc. is proud to announce that, as part of its new positioning which aims to simplify the brand structure of the mutual funds in the current National Bank Securities family, it is changing its name to National Bank Investments Inc. Impelled by the strength of the National Bank brand, National Bank Investments will remain committed to offering one of the most comprehensive ranges of investment solutions available, drawing on the expertise of prominent portfolio managers.

"We are the only major Canadian bank that deals exclusively with third-party portfolio managers. This unique multi-channel approach offers investors the possibility of benefiting from a broad range of renowned managers and a flexible product offering", explained Michel Falk, President and Chief Executive Officer of National Bank Securities. "Regardless of their investor profile, we can provide our clients with the diversification they need by offering them a solution that is in line with their investment objectives."

The brands optimization exercise aims to better reflect the Bank's proactive approach to offering innovative, competitive solutions that serve as the foundation of our clients' assets. The new positioning is guided by the same drive to be accessible, convenient and proactive which are key differentiating factors for National Bank.

Effective May 12, 2014:

  • Legal entity: Name change of the manager from National Bank Securities Inc. to 
  • National Bank Investments Inc. 
  • National Bank Securities trade-mark replaced with National Bank Investments.
  • The National Bank Securities Mutual Funds family will be renamed the National Bank Mutual Funds family. Altamira and Omega Funds will be rebranded with the National Bank name. The name change will in no way affect the makeup or diversification of the funds, or the lineup of managed solutions. Portfolio managers will also remain unchanged as a result of the rebranding.
