Ownership Of TD Bank Drops…Do Investors See A Turnaround?

New York, NY, May 10th, 2024

Active bank investors award low confidence scores to TD’s management and board. Overall, TD’s CFO ranks second last amongst North American banks and the CEO fourth to last. Of course, all six big Canadian banks benefit from passive index holdings but ‘active’ big cap investors in the space say they have lost confidence in TD’s C-Suite. They are either vacating or down-sizing their TD Bank holdings accordingly. Historically, TD has been held in relatively high regard as a competitive institution, however over the last few years, big cap investors say the bank has become complacent to its eroding quality as a competitive investment target.

“We are not yet hearing anything from investors about the promise of a turnaround of confidence in TD’s current board and management,” said Matthew Lapointe, Field Director, Brendan Wood International. “Ed Clark ran a TopGun Institution for many years. The difference in TD’s current investment brand is striking to investors,” says Lapointe. By sharp contrast, RBC’s investment brand is ranked in the top two worldwide, neck and neck with JP Morgan. Will shareholders support TD’s board going forward? Do investors believe that the CEO and CFO can turn investor confidence  around? Both of those questions are presently outweighed by sharp criticism and investment exits. On a positive note, investors acknowledge TD’s share buy-back program as well as the quality of TD’s underlying businesses. The Balance Sheet is robust but investors are duly aware of forthcoming penalties.
