Having been recruiting top class Data & Analytics professionals for some years into the Banking sector it comes as no surprise that Scotiabank is moving toward a more Data Driven Strategy.

In December Scotia Bank announced that “Data is going to define banking in the next five to 10 years, and building a world-class analytics strategy for Scotiabank will be critical to our success in an increasingly digital economy” 

I agree with this but would argue that the advances in the use of Data within the FS sector has been huge over the past 10 years reducing risk, improving insight and delivering profit.
