Financial Knowledge

When consumers are forced to make more and more complex financial decisions, such as choosing from a growing range of products and services, they require strong financial skills to help them choose a solid future for themselves and their families.

Scotiabank believes that it can play a crucial role in the financial education of its customers, which includes the knowledge and tools needed to make sound decisions. Every year, our employees send financial presentations to consumer and student groups in their communities, covering a wide range of financial topics, from saving for retirement to how to manage your credit wisely.

In many countries, we also sponsor financial education and information programs in cooperation with non-profit organizations or local governments, in order to provide solid and unbiased advice to a wide variety of audiences ranging from schoolchildren to entrepreneurs.
