The BNS Group in Costa Rica is a subsidiary of The Bank of Nova Scotia, founded in 1832 and the most international of Canadian banks (with a team of 83,000 Scotiabankers serving 21 million customers in 55 countries).

Established in Costa Rica in 1995, Scotiabank offers the national market a broad range of financial products and services in SME, personal, commercial and corporate banking, in addition to investment funds, stock brokerage, leasing, insurance and private banking.

Scotiabank's performance has earned it various important international recognitions, for example:

• "The 2014 Best Consumer Internet Bank", awarded by Global Finance for the second consecutive year thanks to the quality, functionality and operation of our Scotia Online service.

• "Excellent Workplace", ranking third on the list of workplaces, and the only bank in the country to occupy a top spot, according to the Great Place to Work Institute. This award was received for the seventh consecutive year.

"We are extremely proud of these recognitions because they reflect the effort, teamwork and dedication our customers merit in this increasingly competitive market," asserted Jean-Luc Rich, Vice President for Central America and Costa Rican General Manager.
