Products and services

National Bank Financial offers a wide array of products and services to help you achieve your financial goals.

Turnkey investment solutions

Investing is an excellent way to ensure your long-term financial security, but the complexity of financial markets and the initial capital required to participate in these markets can discourage many eager investors looking to grow their wealth. 

That’s why National Bank Financial – Wealth Management offers turnkey investment solutions that allow you to tap into the markets’ potential, no matter your degree of knowledge in the industry or the time you have to research and monitor your investments. You can now benefit from the discretionary management services that were once reserved for large investors, and free yourself from the concerns associated with trading securities, while saving time and money.

Baskets are remarkable investment tools that suit many investor profiles. They combine professional asset management with a vast array of investment options. When you invest in a Basket, you purchase a diversified selection of investments (stocks, bonds, etc.) in one single move, and thereby become the owner of several distinct securities. 

Two of the main advantages of baskets are that they allow you to save considerably on trading commissions while giving you the opportunity to benefit from professional discretionary management services.

Contact your advisor to determine if this solution is right for you. Click here to learn more about Baskets or click here for the monthly summaries for Baskets and Private Pools.
