MONTREAL, Dec. 16, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - On December 1, National Bank
Direct Brokerage (NBDB) adjusted its fee structure to make it among the
most competitive in the Canadian direct brokerage industry. The new
general fee schedule caps annual administrative fees and saves clients
Annual administrative fees and exemptions are now calculated on all
accounts held by a client1, rather than on each individual account.
"With this new streamlined fee structure, doing business with NBDB just
got better. We are proud to have received the highest rating in the
recent J.D. Power Canadian Discount Brokerage Investor Satisfaction
Study. Our goal is to stay at the top," stated Nancy Paquet, President
If an NBDB client's personal assets exceed $20,000 on May 31, 2014 or
the client trades equities, exchange traded funds (ETF) or options at
least five times between June 1, 2013 and May 31, 2014, the $100
administrative fee will be waived.
For clients whose total assets are less than $20,000, administrative
fees will be charged and divided among the client's accounts. For
example, if a client has an RRSP and a TFSA, the $100 fee will be split and the
client will only pay $50 per account.
No changes have been made to our already very competitive commission
