MONTREAL, April 3, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - National Bank has added a new High Interest Savings Account to its range of savings solutions. The new account offers a promotional interest rate of 1.50% on accounts with a balance of at least $5,000—a much higher annual rate than the one offered on traditional savings accounts. The account allows holders one free ABM withdrawal per month and unlimited free electronic transfers. This product is eligible for Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation (CDIC) coverage.

"National Bank is always striving to meet its clients' expectations by offering accessible savings solutions tailored to their needs. We are also encouraging Canadians to focus on savings," said Yann Jodoin, Vice-President - Retail Products.

In addition to the High Interest Savings Account, the Bank also offers the Altamira High-Interest CashPerformerTM savings account, a high-interest investment vehicle that has been very successful. This product is available at National Bank branches and from investment advisors at our securities brokerage subsidiaries.

Starting today, clients can open a High Interest Savings Account online, in branches, or by calling TelNat. Don't hesitate to contact National Bank for more information on this account.
