At Scotiabank, research is the backbone of our Global Equity platform. Our focus is on Canada with targeted international research to enhance our domestic focus. Our department of over 100 people, the majority of whom are senior analysts and seasoned associates, is dedicated to providing our clients with superior coverage in specialized industry sectors complemented with a high level of service. We spend time understanding our clients' needs and ensuring that our recommendations are suitable for their investment criteria.


Our top-ranked fundamental and macro analysts filter market noise and generate innovative equity ideas. We provide our clients with timely recommendations on more than 500 publicly listed companies and continue to expand our coverage universe, particularly in Latin America where Scotiabank has an established and growing footprint. We also provide the necessary guidance on portfolio strategy with forward-looking insights on interest rates, currencies and commodity prices. Our Scotiabank Global Equity Research team is proud of its excellent track record of providing our clients with the necessary investment knowledge to make informed investment decisions.

Our products and services include fundamental research reports, daily investment views, monthly sector research reports, portfolio analysis and recommendations, online research delivery, interactive analytics, and equity strategy.

In April 2012, Scotiabank acquired premier energy investment boutique, Howard Weil Incorporated. Together with Howard Weil, our Global Equity Research team covers approximately 220 energy companies and provides industry-leading insights and unique perspectives on the energy sector.

Our aim is to be the first on the Street with the most timely and accurate information possible. We publish scheduled publications as well as themed publications, which are renowned throughout the investment community as "must-read" material.

Research Delivery Channels

Through ScotiaView, we offer one of the most highly regarded online research delivery platforms in Canada, allowing our institutional and corporate clients to access Scotiabank's research as soon as it becomes available, 24-7.

Previously known as SC Online, the site was completely redesigned in 2002 to serve as an even more versatile, efficient and integrated portal for current market insights, and to provide key data and interactive analytical tools, along with industry-leading search capabilities. In 2011, SC Online was rebranded as ScotiaView and was enhanced to continue offering clients access to our insight, but with easier-to-use navigation, an improved global search function and personalized features.

New reports are continually uploaded to the site as they become available throughout the day. In addition, research reports are sent directly to our clients based on their delivery preference. Scotiabank is also renowned for its annual Industry Conferences, including Howard Weil's Annual Energy Conference, one of the premier energy investor conferences in the industry. Our conferences have earned an excellent reputation in the marketplace as valuable and informative.

Analyst Standards and Disclosures Policy

Professionalism demands that our well-respected research adheres to the highest standards of independence and objectivity. Well before it became a front-page issue, we maintained strict divisions between our investment banking activities and our equity analysis. High analyst standards, together with appropriate compliance policies, disclosure and transparency, ensure that our clients have confidence in the integrity of our research products and processes.
