Scotiabank Celebrates 50 Years of Service to the US Virgin Islands


Scotiabank is celebrating 50 years of providing banking and financial services to the US Virgin Islands. Originally known as the Bank of Nova Scotia, starting 181 years ago in Canada in 1832, Scotiabank has continually expanded around the globe. Scotiabank has been a force in the Caribbean for more than 120 years, with nearly 300 Caribbean branches; 5 of those in the US Virgin Islands.

Lawrence Aqui, Vice President of Scotiabank USVI, welcomes the public to join in the celebration.  “We are proud to have helped countless families in the Virgin Islands who have trusted Scotiabank with their loans, checking, savings, and credit cards. We plan to help our island neighbors become financially better off by providing relevant solutions to their unique needs for the next 50 years and beyond.”

Scotiabank is celebrating their anniversary during the month of October with a variety of events and promotions. Each of the 5 Scotiabank branches on St. Thomas, St. John and St. Croix will be decorated for the celebration. Scotiabank invites the general public to visit any branch to take part in the celebration and “discover what’s possible”.
