Nest Wealth is Canada’s first Software as a Service (SaaS) digital wealth management platform targeted at financial institutions, investors, and wealth advisors. Nest Wealth is a leader in digital wealth solutions, a positioned strengthened by the company’s partnership with the National Bank of Canada.
Nest Wealth was founded in 2014 by Randy Cass, who had a desire to create a company that offered a better way to invest.
In 2017, National Bank came in with an investment of $6 million. That partnership led to the development of the National Bank savings experience, the bank’s online investment platform.
An extended partnership between Nest Wealth and National Bank was secured in 2020.

Nest Wealth was recognized as one of the Best Workplaces in Canada in 2019, which says a lot about the work culture at this fintech. According to founder and CEO Randy Cass, “each individual gets to be the best version of themselves here.”
The company is also about innovation – imagining and creating. As a recognized leader in the fintech space, Nest Wealth’s workforce is made up of likeminded individuals who are ready to change the way Canadians invest.
Randy Cass is the founder and CEO of Nest Wealth. He has over 30 years of experience in the financial services industry. Fun fact: he was one of the hosts of Market Sense on BNN from 2011 to 2014.
Cass is passionate about helping businesses and individuals achieve their financial goals. In a 2019 interview, Cass said: “Nest Wealth is our vision that we’re going to allow anyone, anywhere regardless of age, wealth, and location to choose how they want to invest in a way that makes them most comfortable.”
Cass holds a business degree from Western University and a law degree from the University of Toronto. He is also a certified financial analyst.
Nest Wealth is a growing company with a bright future. Despite the many developments in the fintech industry, Nest Wealth’s goal remains the same: to change the way Canadians invest. With its culture of innovation, and with the support of banking giant National Bank, Nest Wealth will continue to redefine investing and wealth management for Canadians.
