Scotiabank launches ‘Sleep Advisor’ tools to help Canadians with investments

The financial services company cites its new "Worry Poll" in which three out of four Canadians said they spend an average of 10 hours per week worrying about finances


Scotiabank has launched Sleep Advisor by Scotia Advice+, a series of tools that aims to help Canadians with their investments.

The company cites its new ‘Worry Poll‘ that found that three in four Canadians spend an average of 10 hours a week worrying about finances. Through Sleep Advisor, Scotiabank says it hopes to alleviate financial concerns through a hotline and online Sleep Advisor Hub on the Advice+ Centre.

With respect to the former, Canadians can call 1-833-SLE-EEEP to receive banking advice or book an appointment with a Scotiabank representative. Scotiabank also teases that the hotline has “few surprises make the experience less stressful, including unique daytime and nighttime meditations.” Those calling at night can also book an appointment or listen to a guided meditation.

Sleep Advisor Hub, meanwhile, is an online portal that offers answers related to RRSPs, TFSAs, mutual funds, GICs and more. Articles and FAQs are organized based on a customer’s life stage.

Scotiabank says its findings come from two recently conducted national surveys conducted by Maru Public Opinion — one featuring 1,510 randomly selected Canadian adults between October 12th and 13th, 2021, and the other sampling 1,513 randomly selected Canadian adults on January 7th, 2022.
