Scotiabank fourth-quarter earnings beat market expectations

TORONTO, Nov 29 (Reuters) - Bank of Nova Scotia, Canada’s third-biggest lender, reported a better-than-expected rise in fourth-quarter earnings, driven by a strong performance from its domestic and international banking businesses.

Scotiabank said its earnings per share increased to C$1.58 from C$1.46 in the same period the previous year. Analysts had on average forecast earnings of C$1.51, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. (Reporting by Matt Scuffham; editing by David Clarke)
