ScotiaMcLeod was originally formed in February 1921 by four young entrepreneurs: Donald Ivan McLeod, William Ewart Young, James Gordon Weir and John Henry Ratcliffe. The foundation laid by these men was rooted in trust, financial expertise and innovation - strengths that have prevailed ever since. By the 1970s, McLeod, Young, Weir diversified to offer a full range of investment services.
In 1987, the Bank of Nova Scotia purchased McLeod, Young, Weir having identified it as one of the most established and respected firms in the industry.
