Sept. 6 (Bloomberg) -- Toronto-Dominion Bank’s TD Securities unit cut 10 jobs in its equities business in Toronto, reflecting a slowdown in stock trading.
“As a result of current market conditions and to achieve synergies across functions, TD Securities made the difficult but necessary decision to realign businesses within the equities team,” Laurrell Mohammed, a spokesman for the Toronto-based firm, said in a e-mail today. “The majority of those roles are non-management.”
The cuts at Canada’s second-largest bank were earlier reported in the Globe and Mail newspaper.
