“The National Bank Financial mentorship introduced me to a complete enriching experience in the world of wealth management. From inviting me to the women symposium to having meaningful meetings with my mentor, I have expanded my network and learned more about investing, clients and so much more.”

“The Young Women Student Mentorship Program has been one of the greatest learning experience for me yet. Commencing with the symposium was the best introduction to the bank and this initiative as I got the opportunity to meet such distinguished people and hear their experiences. My mentor has been very involved in my development through this program making sure that I get exposure to various aspects within his team and beyond.”

"At the moment, over two thirds of investment advisors in Canada are men. I find this deeply concerning. 
At National Bank Financial, we have built relationships with universities to set up a mentoring program that will attract more women to the profession. It's expanding year after year, and that makes me extremely proud."
