Bank of Nova Scotia is dropping the “Mocatta” moniker from its metals-trading business, shedding the last vestiges of a firm dating back nearly 350 years as the Canadian owner absorbs the platform into its capital-markets division. It’s an end of an era that began in 1671 when Moses Mocatta opened an account with one of London’s most famous goldsmith bankers, Edward Backwell. Mocatta and his descendants would go on to build what became one of the world’s largest metals-trading businesses and the oldest member of London’s bullion market.

TORONTO , Jan. 11, 2019 /CNW/ - Global growth is moderating and coming off peaks achieved in 2017-18. This long predicted development reflects in part tightening by central banks, a natural cooling of the pace of growth, and the impacts of elevated uncertainty owing to developments in financial markets and the evolution of the China-US trade war. "The decline in equity markets and movements in certain parts of the yield curve over the last few months suggests a clear disconnect between economic prospects as evaluated by markets and those forecast by economists," said Jean-François Perrault, Senior Vice President and Chief Economist at Scotiabank.

Thai lenders Thanachart Bank Pcl and TMB Bank Pcl are in talks to merge in a deal supported by Thailand’s government.
