Important Notice – Upcoming ISA Fund
Launch& Transfer of Existing ISA Assets

Please be advised that Scotiabank’s Advisor Deposit Services will be launching a new suite of Investment Savings Accounts(ISA’s) in place of our existing ISA’s as of March 5, 2018. As a result of this launch all funds held in existing ISA’s will automatically be transferred to the new ISA’s as of April 20, 2018, close of business.

No action is required by you as the transition will happen automatically. Please note interest on the New ISA products will be calculated on a “Tiered” basis (i.e. interest earned is dependent on the daily balance). New rates can be found below and at These new products will have new Funds Codes which are also listed below. Please remember to check any dealer administered SWIPs/PACs/Reinvestment agreements as they may need to be updated. Any systematic plans set up through Dynamic Funds will be automatically transferred. No new deposits will be accepted from Financial Institution Clients1 (i.e. Banks, Credit Unions) into the new ISA suite of products.

Please note – Currently, Scotiabank allows up to $15MM of Non-Personal dollars in a Personal fund and provides Series A, Series E and Series F funds.  As of April 20, 2018, we will no longer allow Non-Personal funds to reside within Personal Accounts.  As such, any Non-Personal funds in Personal Accounts will be transferred into a Non-Personal Account on April 20, 2018. The Series A and Series E products are being combined to create the new A Series - Tiered ISA suite of products. The interest rate2 may decrease for customers affected by these changes.  The Terms and Conditions will be revised effective April 20, 2018 to reflect these changes.
