Bank of Nova Scotia profit dips 2 percent

TORONTO (Reuters) - Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS.TO) quarterly profit slipped 2 percent as provisions for credit losses climbed and capital markets revenue fell from record levels a year earlier.

    Scotiabank, Canada’s third-largest bank, said on Tuesday that net income was C$1.01 billion ($962 million), or 98 Canadian cents a share, in the three months ended July 31.

    That compared with a profit of C$1.03 billion, or C$1.02 a share, a year earlier.
