How do I link my bank account from another financial institution to my NBDB brokerage account? 

There are several ways to add a bank account from an external institution to your NBDB profile:  

  • During your online process of opening an account online, you can link your bank account using the Flinks application. Some financial institutions may not offer this service. 

  • You can mail a $25 cheque to National Bank Direct Brokerage, indicating "Index Account to Profile" in the cheque memo. The cheque will be deposited to the brokerage account of your choice indicated in the cheque memo, cleared by the banking service (10 business days) and the number will be added to your profile on the 11th day. 

  • If you have an NBC account, simpler processes are available. See the question "How do I link my bank account to make money transfers at National Bank Direct Brokerage?
