Montreal, 5 October 2015 -

Clients of National Bank Direct Brokerage (NBDB) are the most satisfied self-directed investors in the Canadian brokerage industry, according to a study by marketing information company J.D. Power.

NBDB believes its performance can be directly attributed to the importance it places in service excellence and information it provides to its clients in the universe of do-it-yourself investing.

"Our objective is to provide our clients a real Red Carpet experience," pointed out Laurent Blanchard, President of National Bank Direct Brokerage. "Our clients can easily choose among a wide range of investment products that are accessible, simple and available at all times via our website, our mobile website or by telephone, assisted by representatives. For example, with InvestCube, we are offering investors an automated smart investing solution that is both user-friendly and effective. In all cases, we provide support to our clients, while leaving them in control of their investments, and we capitalize on the complementary nature of our various channels. This, in our opinion and based on the appreciation expressed, is the key to our success," added Mr. Blanchard.

The marketing information company, which compiled responses from 2,734 respondents in May and June, concluded that NBDB stands out from the other companies in terms of interaction, information on accounts, and products offered.
