When Scotia Capital relocated its global energy solutions team from New York to Calgary last year, it sent ripples through the city’s banking community and was hailed by many as a major sign of maturity for the local industry. Leading the way for Scotia Capital is Matt Giffen, a 20-year veteran of the banking industry who was in charge of Scotia Capital’s European and Asian capital market operations in London, Dublin and Singapore before returning to Toronto in 2007. The arrival of Giffen and his team complements the existing Scotia Waterous group, which has had tremendous success financing international oil and gas mergers and acquisitions in recent years.
