About Us

National Bank Financial: At your service since 1902

JMRD is proud of its association links with National Bank Financial and shares its ideals and aspirations.

National Bank Financial’s mission is to manage the world’s most important investments: yours.

Over a century ago, before many of our current competitors had seen the light of day, National Bank Financial was already leading the way for Canadian investors. In fact, we still are. Developing new and innovative solutions to meet the changing needs of our clients is a tradition we have maintained to this day.

National Bank Financial is one of the six largest investment dealers in Canada, with 3,500 employees (including more than 1,000 Investment Advisors) and a 100-branch network that extends from Victoria to Halifax. The firm has more than 400,000 individual investor clients, for whom it manages close to $70 billion in assets. National Bank Financial is a subsidiary of the National Bank of Canada, one of the country’s seven major chartered banks. National Bank was named one of the world’s most stable banks by Bloomberg in 2011. In addition to its 660 Canadian branches, National Bank has offices in New York, Chicago and eighteen other American cities, and is represented in some 120 countries. The National Bank of Canada’s asset base exceeds $83 billion, giving National Bank Financial a solid, reliable and dynamic partner.

As a full-service investment dealer, we offer access to a broad range of investment products and services, but our primary role is to provide our clients with objective, well-researched information and wise counsel.

Think of us as a serious partner committed to helping you meet your financial needs.
