Requisition ID: 65050

 

Join the Global Community of Scotiabankers to help customers become better off.

 

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.
