Canadian Banks Enter U.S. Bitcoin ETF Market with Multi-Million Dollar Investments

Leading Canadian banks have recently entered the U.S. Bitcoin ETF market with multi-million dollar investments.

Scotia Bank and Toronto Dominion Bank (TD Bank), prominent financial institutions, disclosed their stakes through SEC filings.

Scotiabank invested over $1.5 million across three major Bitcoin ETFs: BlackRock’s IBIT, Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC), and Fidelity Wise’s FBTC. TD Bank, Canada’s second-largest bank, took a more conservative approach with about $121,410 in BlackRock’s IBIT ETF.

Additionally, both banks explored ProShares Bitcoin Strategy ETF (BITO) investments, with TD Bank allocating $484,500.

Combined, their investments total $2.18 million, marking a significant shift in the Canadian banking sector’s stance on digital assets.
