Additionally, you will need the ScotiaBank SWIFT code for int'l transfers

I am told by my branch that we will all be advised of that code.... readily available on Internet

I see cluster fudge written all over this one. Probably going to use Eden Norte to write the software for the merged accounts..... Hopefully no one loses money.
Meantime the best bank, which I won't mention, because it's not crowded, does 1 day transfers from the states, is building new branches everywhere and getting a good percentage of the extranjeros as customers.
