Financial Services

Scotiabank is a leading financial services provider in over 55 countries and Canada's most international bank. Since welcoming our first customers in Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 1832, Scotiabank has continued to expand its global reach. Today, through our team of more than 83,000 employees, Scotiabank and its affiliates offer a broad range of products and services, including personal and commercial banking, wealth management, corporate and investment banking, to over 21 million customers.

Scotiabank's continued growth and success is founded on several key factors:

•    A committed team that lives our shared values and works together to provide customers with expert advice, insights and financial solutions.
•    A highly diversified and well-balanced business, operating within a clearly defined global footprint.
•    A strategy with a clear focus on three priorities that will help us build an even better bank: being more focused on our customers; enhancing leadership depth, diversity and deployment;  and being better organized to serve customers and reduce costs.  

Our Core Businesses

Our strategy of diversification underpins our potential for sustainable earnings growth in each of our four business lines: Canadian Banking, International Banking, Global Wealth & Insurance, and Global Banking and Markets, over the long term.

Corporate Social Responsibility

Scotiabank helps to build bright futures worldwide through ethical banking practices, environmental awareness and a commitment to communities.

 Scotiabank's corporate social responsibility philosophy is to integrate sound environmental, social and governance practices into our day-to-day business activities. We measure our success not only in terms of financial criteria, but also in building customer satisfaction and employee engagement, and supporting the communities we serve.

 The Scotiabank Bright Future Program is the Bank’s global philanthropic vision. The Bank’s multinational reach has provided a unique opportunity to help people around the world through corporate giving and employee volunteer programs that span six pillars: education, health, social services, arts & culture, sports and environment.

Our community giving is an important component of our CSR efforts. In 2013, the Bank contributed $62 million in donations and sponsorships to community causes around the world. We are also proud that our employees spent more than 424,000 hours volunteering and fundraising through our formal community programs.
