- They used to have Personal Banking Officers (PBOs) and Financial Advisers. Now, they are all called Financial Advisers, but internally they use a number system (I, II, III) to determine the level of qualification of the adviser and the type of client they would meet with.
- You can visit any bank branch to open an account, apply for a loan or line of credit or even apply to for a mortgage. Scotiabank is one of the few banks that use independent brokers to help sell their products. So even if you use a mortgage broker, chances are you could end up with a Scotiabank loan.
- You can also conveniently obtain a bank draft or money order if you’re purchasing something where one is requested. This is very common when buying a new vehicle. While you might not consider this often, when you’re with an online bank, you aren’t able to receive this luxury quickly.
- You can also go into the tellers and take money out and pay bills the old fashioned way. Not to mention online banking is a thing.
- You can also sit down with an adviser for so much more. They can handle anything from retirement planning to estate and tax planning. Depending on just how much you make or how much money you have, you can opt to move your business to the Scotiabank Private Client group where they will actively manage your money. This is opposed to purchasing mutual funds through an adviser.
- You can also use Scotia McLeod or Scotia iTrade and get into the world of investments on your own.
- Not to forget about the old bread and butter of a bank. The safety deposit box! A very secure double key entry box inside of a large safe. This is where you can keep your valuables very safe. You are not however allowed to store cash in a safety deposit box. They can’t have people hiding money!
