National Bank Direct Brokerage Announces its New Highly Competitive Fee Structure

National Bank Direct Brokerage Announces its New Highly Competitive Fee 
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 money. 
Annual administrative fees and exemptions are now calculated on all accounts 
held by a client(1), 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 of NBDB. 
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 schedule.
