Scotiabank Launch Online Banking Services in Barbados

Friday 28 November 2003 08:48 CET | News

Canadian Scotiabank has launched basic Online Banking services in Barbados, complementing a 2003 expansion plan that also brought Internet banking to Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, Costa Rica and Puerto Rico.

Online services - powered by S1 Corporation technology - allow clients to view account balances and transaction histories, while also facilitating bill payments and transfers between accounts. Spanish capabilities will be added in early 2004. Scotiabank is Canadas most international bank, operating in some 50 countries around the world. In the Caribbean and Central America region alone, Scotiabank operates in 25 countries, the largest presence of any other bank in the world. Scotiabank moved into Kingston, Jamaica, long before it opened a branch in Toronto, following the islands booming export industry, as improved Caribbean shipping lines brought sugar, rum, coffee and bananas to markets in Canada and the U.S. The region has produced record annual earnings for more than a decade, culminating in net income of C$290 million in fiscal 2002. As a region, we are at least twice the size of any other competitors - by almost all measures.
