“TD’s retail businesses in both Canada and the United States continued to show strong revenue and earnings growth this quarter, with robust customer originations and loan volumes,” said Bharat Masrani, Group President and CEO, TD Bank Group. “Investments in differentiated wealth and insurance products and the close of the Cowen acquisition expanded our offerings and strengthened the competitive advantages of these businesses.”
TD Q2 2023 Wealth Management and Insurance
Wealth Management and Insurance net income of C$563m falls by 16% y-o-y. This reflects lower earnings in the wealth management business. TD says that this quarter’s revenue growth of 2% underscores the strength of the segment’s diversified business model. Higher insurance revenue and net interest income largely offsets the impact of trading normalisation and market volatility.
