Associate, Investment Banking – Real Estate Property Brokerage Group


Global Banking and Markets provides a full range of credit, risk management and investment banking products and services relevant to the financing and strategic development needs of our clients.  Our products include investment banking, mergers & acquisitions, corporate banking, institutional equity sales, trading and research, debt products, derivatives, foreign exchange and bullion & base metals.  We also cross-sell the full range of wholesale products and services offered by Scotiabank.


Position Highlights: 

Associates in Investment Banking enjoy a stimulating and challenging work environment in which they execute a broad range of transactions. A high degree of responsibility is afforded to those demonstrating initiative and the desire to take on such responsibility.


At the early stages of their career, Associates focus on client presentations, financial modeling, research and mentoring/supervising Analysts.  As the individual’s career progresses, Associates take on increased responsibilities on live transactions and participating in business development under the guidance of senior group members. Scotiabank brings new Associates in contact with senior team members and clients at the earliest possible stage, allowing them to gain experience in managing and cultivating relationships.


A significant amount of effort, diligence and initiative is required to properly execute assignments. The complexity of clients’ financial requirements coupled with the intense competitiveness of the investment banking industry necessitates a full commitment to the task at hand. Standards are very high as most work is presented to senior executives at client firms and supervision is provided only to the extent that it is required.


Scotiabank’s Property Brokerage Group executes commercial real estate transactions on behalf of institutional and private clients. With a limited hierarchy of professionals and a small project team approach, Associates have ample opportunity for career growth and development. Associates will benefit from exposure to a wide range of commercial real estate transactions related to all major asset classes across Canada.


New Associates may participate in the Capital Ideas Program, an intensive training program developed by the Firm.  The program is designed to orient participants to our culture, people, products and services and to provide the soft and technical skills, and contacts critical for success.  Team projects, individual study and social activities supplement classroom discussions.


The successful candidate will be a key member within a team of professionals servicing a broad range of real estate clients out of Scotiabank’s downtown Toronto office.
