What began with a small banking office in Kingston is today, a sophisticated island wide network of 42 branches. With a staff of over 1600, Scotiabank Jamaica provides state-of-the-art retail and commercial banking services to the Jamaican public. Through it all, Scotiabank has taken the longer view and has established its reputation as a strong, stable, and reliable participant in Jamaica’s continuing growth and development. Our commitment to customers -You’re Safe with Us- is more than just an advertising slogan; it is backed by the experience and stability accompanying a century of continuous and progressive banking operations in Jamaica.

Over the years, the Bank has recorded significant growth and development in its customer base, and the variety and quality of services offered. Scotiabank now boasts one of the most modern state-of-the-art on-line banking systems in Jamaica offering Any Branch Banking (ABB) including Automated Banking Machines (Scotiaplus 24) to our retail customers and sophisticated electronic Cash Management Services (CMS) to our commercial clients.
