"Private Banking 1859 is taking private management into a new era, with unequalled delivery of innovative, effective services and solutions that respect the needs expressed, executed in exemplary fashion by a team dedicated solely to our clients' success," explained Meghan Meger, President of Private Banking 1859Western Canada.

To reflect a new image, the name was changed from Private Wealth 1859 to Private Banking 1859. This more closely corresponds to the perceptions and evolution of the Canadian market while emphasizing the diversity of the banking services offered to clients in search of highly personalized wealth management.

Along with the new name is a new graphic signature, in black and titanium. "The logo is a monogram that symbolizes the myriad multidimensional connections between Private Banking 1859 and its clients. Although our new image is decidedly more contemporary, there is still continuity with our origins, since 1859 honours the year that National Bank was founded," added Ms. Meger.
