Scotia insights
an original web series.

The Scotia insights series was first launched 
in February 2016.

The series is meant to bring a sense of deep understanding and awareness. Featured guest speakers give the audience insight into their expertise and the audience is then encouraged to ask questions and engage in insightful discussions. Each time we host a new episode, we hope our invitees will be inspired to make significant adjustments in their lives and the way they operate business.

Whether this means to determine a new path or follow a lifelong dream, it is important to us that we, at Scotiabank help our customers evolve.

Our customers, benefited from the expertise of Scotiabankers Rolf Schmitz, Stephen Bagnarol and Damian Jones as they shared global and local perspectives on navigating the current unchartered business environment. Insights were shared on how the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a fall in oil prices, subdued demand, and a price war between Russia and Saudi Arabia. The discussion focused not only on the recent volatility in the oil market, but also on the outlook for oil prices moving forward, the potential influence on the local energy industry and how this impacts the way business is conducted.
