National Bank Financial Group


Overall Ranking (96%)

The Overall Ranking is a score from 1 star (very bad) to 5 stars (excellent) generated based on the Company Reviews of current and former employees at this company, taking everything into account.

The number you see in the middle of the donut pie chart is the simple average of these scores. If you hover over the various sections of the donut, you will see the % breakdown of each score given.

The percentile score in the title is calculated across the entire Company Database and uses an adjusted score based on Bayesian Estimates (to account for companies that have few reviews). Simply put, as a company gets more reviews, the confidence of a "true score" increases so it is pulled closer to its simple average and away from the average of the entire dataset.

The Overall Ranking is generated based on the Company Reviews.

Company Details

NBF is a truly integrated firm, combining institutional brokerage, investment banking, corporate finance and securities clearing services with retail advisory and brokerage services. The Firm has a substantial presence in all regions of Canada as well as operations in the United States and Europe.

Continuing a tradition that goes back to 1902, National Bank Financial has made client service and the development of long-term client relationships the cornerstone of its operating philosophy.
