Scotiabank’s new CEO unveils his playbook

Nearly six months into his new role, Bank of Nova Scotia chief executive officer Brian Porter laid out a strategy that emphasizes growing the lender’s Latin American business, and focuses on developing internal talent.

Mr. Porter isn’t looking to make any radical changes – “we’ve got the big picture right,” he told the audience at the bank's annual general meeting in Kelowna, B.C. – but there is room for improvement, he said, adding that the company needs to focus on specific regions.
