2023 Investment Banking Analyst, Power and Utilities 

Houston, Texas, United States


Why work for Scotiabank?


Scotiabank is a leading bank in the Americas. We are powered by our 97,000 high-performing teammates who make a real difference across the globe as a leading provider of advice, products, digital experiences, and financial services. At Scotiabank, we’re passionate about bringing our whole selves to work, allowing us to create inclusive work environments for everyone to enjoy. Analysts will have access to the Global Banking and Markets Learning Program within Capital Ideas including frequent interactive learning sessions led by our experienced professionals. 


Position Highlights:

Analysts 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.


Scotiabank’s Power & Utilities Investment Banking team is a leading renewable energy investment banking platform. The team is actively involved with a wide array of renewable investors, developers and regulated utilities. The Analyst will have the opportunity to immediately and meaningfully contribute to live transactions including sell-side renewable asset/portfolio sales and capital raises for leading renewable platforms.

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.

With a limited hierarchy of professionals and a small project team approach, Analysts have ample opportunity for career growth and development.  On any given project, Analysts will interact with other departments of the firm such as Corporate Banking, Equity Capital Markets, Global Fixed Income and Global Equity Derivatives gaining knowledge and understanding of both investment banking and the capital markets.
