Scotia Wealth Management offers a diverse suite of wealth management solutions especially for high-net-worth individuals and families. It is the wealth management arm of Scotiabank, one of Canada’s most established financial institutions.
Scotia Wealth Management, part of the Scotiabank group, has established itself as a comprehensive provider of investment and wealth solution services. The division includes ScotiaMcLeod®, Private Investment Counsel, Private Banking, Scotiatrust®, Total Wealth Planning, and other wealth solutions.
Its parent company was formed in Halifax by a group of businessmen to fill the need for a public bank. It was called the Bank of Nova Scotia when it was launched in 1832; it expanded rapidly in the years that followed. In 1961, the bank used the name Scotiabank and somehow, that monicker has stuck. The bank’s official name is still the Bank of Nova Scotia.
Some of Scotia Wealth Management’s diverse products and services include:
Scotia Wealth Management, under the umbrella of Scotiabank, fosters an inclusive and high-performing culture. The bank invests in building leaders and creating an environment where employees are encouraged to bring their whole selves to work. Diversity and inclusion are key pillars, with Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) fostering a culture of inclusion.
