Scotiabank has long had an interest in Latin America, with assets throughout the Caribbean and Mexico. Recently Canada’s number two bank has stepped up its presence by buying a bank in Chile, expanding in the Caribbean and announcing plans to open 100 branches in Mexico. Along with this push, the CEO announced the appointment of Anatol von Hahn, who will take over as head of Latin America in January.
