One of the biggest
With its feet planted firmly on Canadian soil and its headquarters in Toronto, TD Securities is the wholesale banking arm of TD Bank Financial Group (TDBFG), the second largest bank in Canada. TDBFG is comprised of Toronto-Dominion Bank and its subsidiaries. TD Securities has offices in 13 cities, including Toronto, Calgary, Montreal, Vancouver, New York, Houston, Mexico City, London, Dublin, Hong Kong, Singapore, Seoul and Shanghai. TD Securities is best known in Canada, where it regularly enjoys critical acclaim and annual showings on the country's investment banking league tables.
Key business lines include investment banking, equities, and rates and FX. Through these lines, the firm offers a host of specialized services, including securities underwriting, sales and trading, equity research (the firm's 60 research analysts and associates cover about 280 companies), M&A advisory (TD ranked No. 3 in announced Canadian M&A deal volume for the first six months of 2010 and No. 1 in completed deals), foreign exchange and real estate advisory. The firm works closely with TD Bank and its brokerage subsidiary, TD Waterhouse.
TD Bank's other subsidiaries include TD Canada Trust (retail banking), TD Commercial Banking, TD Asset Management and TD Banknorth. TD Banknorth and TD Ameritrade were formed in 2005, and perhaps among the more significant acquisitions that helped the firm better penetrate the U.S. market. In 2008, TD Banknorth merged with New Jersey's Commerce Bank to form TD Bank NA, giving TD an increasing presence in the States; it also opened 59 new retail locations throughout North America during the year.
Providing it all
As part of TD Bank's wholesale banking segment, TD Securities provides investment banking products and services to corporate and government clients throughout Canada, the U.S., Europe, Asia and Australia. Services include bond and equity analysis, mergers and acquisitions support, risk management, capital raising and foreign exchange. The firm's investment bankers deliver these offerings out of particular industry groups, including communications and media, diversified industries, financial institutions, oil and gas, technology, and utilities and power. The institutional equities group (known as TD Newcrest) delivers equity research in addition to underwriting, sales and trading, and distribution. The firm also has a debt capital markets team that trades and sells various fixed income products and derivatives. The bank's foreign exchange group is a major player in the Canadian derivatives market.
