"Bank of Nova Scotia, Canada’s third-largest lender by assets, agreed to buy Dresdner Bank Brasil SA to enter the Brazilian investment-banking market.

Scotiabank will be the only Canadian bank in Brazil with multiple banking licenses to provide a range of financial services when the deal closes, the Toronto-based lender said in a statement today. The price wasn’t disclosed.

“We haven’t had a lot of doors open to us in Brazil,” Scotia Capital Co-Chief Executive Officer Stephen McDonald said today in a telephone interview. “We haven’t had an opportunity until now to knock on corporate clients’ doors and look for capital markets business.”

Chief Executive Officer Richard Waugh, 62, has spent about $2 billion in foreign acquisitions since 2007 and has been looking at Brazil for at least a year. International banking, which includes operations in Mexico, the Caribbean and Taiwan, accounted for 37 percent of the bank’s C$3.54 billion ($3.44 billion) in net income in the fiscal year ended Oct. 31.
