Scotiabank has presented the University of Windsor with a five-year gift agreement in support of research at UWindsor’s Cross-Border Institute to help Canadian firms from all economic sectors participate in the global marketplace.

The donation will support the Scotiabank Global Financial Transactions Initiative, which focuses on small and medium enterprises that concentrate on the role transaction banking plays in advancing Canada’s trade agenda.

The Cross-Border Institute will research emerging technologies; political and policy impacts on global business; as well as supply chain finance and the international policy environment.

“This collaboration between Scotiabank and the CBI will provide research opportunities for both students and faculty at the University,” interim president Douglas Kneale said. “The integrated and efficient flow of people, goods, services, and money across borders nowadays is of vital importance to global business and trade, and we thank Scotiabank for its investment in this new research and education centre for international financial transactions.”
