Scotiabank to Launch the ScotiaMocatta eStore in Canada – a New Full-Service Online
Precious Metals Delivery Channel
TORONTO, September 29, 2009 – Scotiabank today announced that it is the first bank in
Canada to launch a full-service online precious metals delivery channel through its
ScotiaMocatta division – a global leader in precious metals trading, financing, and physical
products. Canadians may now browse, purchase and arrange delivery of gold and silver products
online at www.scotiamocatta.com/eStore.
“ScotiaMocatta’s online precious metals eStore provides Canadians with an opportunity to
explore the world of precious metals, while also completing purchases in the comfort and
convenience of their homes,” said Rick Waugh, President and Chief Executive Officer,
Scotiabank. “Our new eStore reinforces ScotiaMocatta’s global industry leadership through
innovations that respond to the changing needs and increasing sophistication of our customer
base. This opportunity broadens the range of choices in our wealth management offering to
customers.”
The ScotiaMocatta eStore is currently accepting orders from within Canada only, and home
delivery of purchases is available to most points across the country. Customers can purchase up
to $6,000 worth of gold and silver per day and pay through the Interac network using Visa,
MasterCard, or debit cards. Precious metals products will continue to be available for purchase
through any Scotiabank branch in Canada. Eventually ScotiaMocatta will expand this service to
include the 50 countries in which Scotiabank operates.
“The ScotiaMocatta eStore, an innovative and secure platform, will supplement our existing
branch network in offering precious metals products to Canadians” said Barry Wainstein, Vice-
Chairman and Deputy Head, Global Capital Markets, and Global Head, Foreign Exchange and
Precious Metals. “This new delivery channel demonstrates our ongoing commitment to
providing exceptional customer service and market-leading products in Canada and around the
world.”
