National Bank Awarded Two Prestigious International Distinctions for its 
Structured Products 
MONTREAL, May 20, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - National Bank was once again rewarded 
for both its structured products and approach that is adapted to the needs of 
individual and institutional investors. The Bank's team responsible for 
structured products accepted the highly sought-after Structured Products 
Canada House of the Year, Americas Award during a ceremony in Miami on May 8. 
This award highlights National Bank's innovation in 2013 in developing 
structured products, and was given by London's internationally renowned 
magazine Structured Products. 
"This prestigious award recognizes the creativity and ability to innovate 
demonstrated by all the units involved in engineering and distributing 
structured products within National Bank, in order to meet the needs of 
clients," said Vincent Marquis, Managing Director, Structured Solutions Group. 
"It covers all of National Bank's structured products, notably the 
variable-return GICs that are distributed in the branch network, which are 
standout products in the industry, and are known for their unique features and 
innovative structures." 
The Bank also received another distinction in April at the mtn-i 2014 Awards. 
The mtn-i, an internationally known organization in the structured product 
sector, decided to include Canadian institutions among their nominees for the 
first time this year. National Bank was recognized for its innovative and 
highly flexible "Bespoke Notes(®) Program" and becomes the first Canadian 
Bank to take home the honours for its made-to-measure products offered to 
individuals for a multitude of underlying needs. The "Bespoke Notes(®) 
Program" offers investors a process that facilitates the creation of 
non-principal protected deposit notes that are tailored to reflect a targeted 
strategy that meets each person's specific needs.
