Equity Origination

Scotiabank’s investment banking and equity capital markets professionals work with corporations, governments and private companies to creatively structure deals and raise capital. Whether it is common equity, income trusts, convertibles, preferred shares, structured products, or private placements, we can assist our clients in advancing their strategic and financial objectives. We are unique in our ability to provide equity origination across the entire NAFTA region. We also provide coverage across Latin America, with specific focus on the Pacific Alliance countries – Mexico, Peru, Chile and Colombia, serving both local corporations and governments as well as local subsidiaries of global corporations.

With a network of offices worldwide, we have strong global distribution capabilities with institutional investors and consistently rank among the top three block traders of equities in Canada. Our wealth-management operations in Canada and across Latin America also provide a strong platform for the distribution of securities to individual investors.
