TORONTO, Aug. 27, 2015 – TD Bank Group (“TD” or the “Bank”) today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended July 31, 2015. The Bank recorded adjusted earnings of $2.3 billion, an increase of 5% compared with the same quarter last year, reflecting strong contributions from the Canadian Retail and Wholesale Banking segments.
“TD’s third quarter performance demonstrates the strength of our diversified business model,” said Bharat Masrani, Group President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our results were fueled by good organic growth, continued strong credit performance, favourable currency translation, and positive operating leverage.”
Canadian Retail delivered net income of $1.6 billion, an increase of 11% over the third quarter last year on a reported basis, and 8% over the third quarter last year on an adjusted basis. Earnings were primarily driven by good loan, deposit, and wealth asset volume growth and very strong insurance earnings.
“Our Canadian Retail businesses performed very well,” said Tim Hockey, Group Head, Canadian Banking and Wealth Management. “We are delighted that TD Canada Trust was recognized for the tenth consecutive year by J.D. Power for attaining ‘Highest in Customer Satisfaction Among the Big Five Retail Banks.’ Looking ahead, we will continue to focus on providing legendary customer experiences through all of our channels.”
U.S. Retail reported net income for the third quarter was US$543 million and adjusted net income was US$524 million. Excluding the Bank’s investment in TD Ameritrade, the segment generated adjusted net income of US$450 million, in line with the third quarter last year. The results reflect strong loan and deposit growth, and disciplined expense management, partially offset by lower margins and normalizing credit losses.
TD Ameritrade contributed US$74 million in earnings, an increase of 7% compared with the third quarter last year.
“Our U.S. Retail business had a strong quarter, with very good volume growth and excellent expense management,” said Mike Pedersen, Group Head, U.S. Banking. “Our ongoing focus on customer experience, deepening relationships, and productivity positions us well going forward.”
Wholesale Banking net income for the quarter was $239 million, an increase of 11% compared with the third quarter last year, driven by higher trading, mergers and acquisitions fees, and corporate lending revenue.
“Our results reflected strong trading, good debt capital market originations activity, and a growing U.S. loan portfolio,” said Bob Dorrance, Group Head, Wholesale Banking. “We remain focused on growing and strengthening client relationships and managing our risk.”
TD’s Common Equity Tier 1 Capital ratio on a Basel III fully phased-in basis was 10.1%, compared with 9.9% last quarter.
“Our results this quarter reflect the growth engines, earnings power and resilience of our businesses against a challenging operating and economic backdrop,” said Masrani. “We remain relentlessly focused on delivering and pursuing growth opportunities, increasing our productivity, and adapting our organization for the future.”
