  1. Robin Monks says:

    Also as a reminder, ING Direct is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Scotiabank.

  2. Kay says:

    @RobinMonks and? what does that mean? is scotiabank bad? should I consider moving my savings? Please explain.

  3. Amy says:

    I think Robin’s point is that ING Direct is attached to Scotiabank, which may make some people feel safer because it is attached to a well known, physical bank. According to wikipedia, Scotiabank is the third largest bank in Canada by deposits and market capitalization.

  4. Roger Lamothe says:

    Actually, Amy, I personally have had horrible experiences with Scotiabank, so much that I’ve closed up all my accounts and moved elsewhere. The fact that ING Direct Canada (which will change name shortly) is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Scotiabank is, for me, a show stopper.

    Too bad.
