Scotiabank in the Cayman Islands

Scotiabank & Trust (Cayman) Limited has been operating in the Cayman Islands for over 50 years. The Bank of Nova Scotia, now known as Scotiabank, was originally incorporated in 1965 as the first Trust Company in the Cayman Islands. The bank officially opened its headquarters in George Town in 1966, one of only two commercial banks located in the Cayman Islands at the time.

In 1998 all branches of the Bank of Nova Scotia in the Cayman Islands were locally incorporated as a wholly owned subsidiary under the name, Scotiabank (Cayman Islands) Ltd. and in 2003 the Bank and Trust division merged to become Scotiabank & Trust (Cayman) Ltd.

Today, Scotiabank & Trust (Cayman) Ltd. have a staff compliment of 145 employees and operate a network of 3 branches in the Cayman Islands providing a full range of financial products, solutions and advice to Retail, Small Business, Corporate and Commercial, Captive Insurance, and Wealth customers and clients.

Scotiabank has been awarded as a Top Employer four times honored as one of the best places to work in the Cayman Islands. Scotiabank puts staff first offering excellent training and development opportunities along with a flexible, supportive work environment.

For over 180 years, Scotiabankers have had a history of giving back to our communities in order to create better places to live and work. As a prominent financial institution on a global level, our international reach, has provided a unique opportunity to help people around the world.

Putting people first lies at the heart of Scotiabank’s culture in the Cayman Islands. The bank contributes, organizes, volunteers and participates in a number of community initiatives each year focusing on programmes that support Youth, Education, Health, Sports and Arts & Culture.

Our aim is to help these communities become better off. By giving generously to important community projects and recognizing employees who volunteer their time and energy to local causes, the Bank strives to make a positive difference in the communities which we operate.
