WITH another financial year having been completed on October 31, 2015, Scotiabank’s President and CEO Jacqueline Sharp believes that despite the challenges presented by the restructuring of the financial industry, the group will continue to grow in the upcoming year.
“It’s been a very, very challenging year, but also a very good year in terms of achievements against our strategic priorities,” Sharp said, speaking at this week’s Jamaica Observer Monday Exchange, held at the newspaper’s headquarters at Beechwood Avenue in Kingston.
