Scotiabank's digital focus secures 'bank of the year' title


A global publication has recognized one of Canada’s Big 6 banks as the best in class.

The Financial Times publication The Banker has named Scotiabank as its Canadian Bank of the Year 2019, particularly highlighting the bank’s investment in digital and technology to enhance the customer experience.

This includes Scotia’s banking app which is rated as the number one financial app in Canada in the Apple App Store and Google Play.

There was acknowledgement for the bank’s leadership in executing an ambitious digital strategy enabled by PLATO, an innovative cloud development platform that is accelerating the Bank's technology transformation. 

"We are very pleased to be named this year's Bank of the Year in Canada by The Banker," said Brian Porter, President and Chief Executive Officer of Scotiabank. "This award is a recognition of the many efforts we have undertaken in recent years to position our Bank for a strong future in Canada, and in each of our key markets and businesses."

The bank collected its award in London last week and also won for its businesses in The Bahamas and in Trinidad & Tobago.
