TORONTO and NEW YORK, April 11, 2023 /CNW/ - TD Asset Management Inc. ("TDAM") and Epoch Investment Partners, Inc., are pleased to announce the launch of a new strategic approach for their institutional asset management businesses, including a new global distribution identity, TD Global Investment Solutions ("TDGIS"). As part of this initiative, Epoch Investment Partners, Inc. and its investment capabilities will be referred to as TD Epoch.
TDGIS will bring together TDAM and TD Epoch's combined capabilities to the global investing community and expand its offerings in existing and new jurisdictions. TDGIS will deliver the collective investment experience and expertise across alternative investments, equities, and fixed income (in certain jurisdictions) to institutional investors.
"We are excited to launch our new global identity as it builds on the strengths of our North American asset management franchise," said Bruce Cooper, Chief Executive Officer, TD Asset Management Inc. and TD Epoch, Senior Vice President, TD Bank Group. "TDAM and TD Epoch collaborating under one umbrella will strengthen our relationships with our investment teams, foster innovation and enhance our ability to bring forward relevant products and solutions to the markets and our valued clients while giving our institutional business a competitive global and domestic advantage."
TDGIS is a significant step on TDAM and TD Epoch's global journey and will build on the momentum and growth of its institutional business to deliver investment solutions that meet client needs. With the launch of TDGIS, the investing businesses of TDAM and TD Epoch, which include the investment leadership, philosophies, processes and dedicated teams remain unchanged. The changes associated with TDGIS apply only to the institutional businesses of TDAM and TD Epoch, and there is no impact to intermediary and retail businesses.
Key Benefits of TDGIS Include:
Breadth of Expertise: The new identity brings the entire range of TDAM's and TD Epoch's capabilities together under a single marketing umbrella, strengthening and simplifying their offerings for institutional investors, continuing the value of their unique investment philosophies.
Client Experience: This framework will support stronger client relationships, higher quality engagement and increased flexibility.
Scalability: The Distribution Team can represent an expanded capability set to institutional prospects across markets.
"With TDGIS, we will continue to put our clients first – by collaborating, innovating and creating strong relationships to deliver customized solutions and aim to provide better client outcomes," continued Cooper. "This new venture will market our leading and innovative capabilities to the global institutional investing community and help us achieve our vision of becoming the leading asset manager in Canada, with a growing global presence."
