National Bank Direct Brokerage Launches a Mobile Version of its New Website

MONTREAL, Sept. 20, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - With a view to making its online presence even more user-friendly, National Bank Direct Brokerage (NBDB) is launching a mobile version of the new website released in July (nbdb.ca).

The mobile site optimizes user experience on smartphone devices, and is in line with NBDB's interactive strategy, which calls for developing and improving e-channels to make our services even more accessible to self-directed investors.

The new site at nbdb.ca, launched a few weeks ago in English and French, features a simplified, user-friendly interface, a new look, and a revamped Education Centre. It offers online investors a personalized path and content adapted to their specific trading style: novice, seasoned or active.

The new NBDB site offers users support via its new telephone appointment scheduling function. This function allows them to speak to a representative over the telephone, at their convenience. We have made every effort to modernize our users' web experience, by providing educational videos, social network integration and even an RSS feed.

The mobile interface, which is also available in English and French, has been enriched and adapted for use on smartphones. It rounds out the National Bank Direct Brokerage mobile offer, as our trading site has already been optimized for mobile usage.

Visit either our full site at nbdb.ca or the mobile version at m.nbdb.ca today!
