National Bank Launches New High Interest Savings Account

MONTREAL, April 3, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - National Bank has added a new High 
Interest Savings Account to its range of savings solutions. The new account 
offers a promotional interest rate of 1.50% on accounts with a balance of at 
least $5,000—a much higher annual rate than the one offered on traditional 
savings accounts. The account allows holders one free ABM withdrawal per month 
and unlimited free electronic transfers. This product is eligible for Canada 
Deposit Insurance Corporation (CDIC) coverage. 
"National Bank is always striving to meet its clients' expectations by 
offering accessible savings solutions tailored to their needs. We are also 
encouraging Canadians to focus on savings," said Yann Jodoin, Vice-President - 
Retail Products. 
In addition to the High Interest Savings Account, the Bank also offers the 
Altamira High-Interest CashPerformer(TM) savings account, a high-interest 
investment vehicle that has been very successful. This product is available at 
National Bank branches and from investment advisors at our securities 
brokerage subsidiaries. 
Starting today, clients can open a High Interest Savings Account online, in 
branches, or by calling TelNat. Don't hesitate to contact National Bank for 
more information on this account.
