Our Main Business Units

Retail and Business Banking

Retail and Business Banking provides clients across Canada with financial advice, products and services through a team of advisors and more than 1,100 branches, as well as our ABMs, mobile sales force, telephone banking, online and mobile banking.

Our strategy in Retail and Business Banking has two objectives – to enhance the client experience and to accelerate profitable revenue growth. Supporting our retail objectives are three priorities:

  1. Deepen relationships with our clients
  2. Improve our sales and service capabilities
  3. Acquire and retain clients

Wealth Management

Wealth Management provides relationship-based advisory services and an extensive suite of leading investment solutions to meet the needs of institutional, retail and high net worth clients. Our asset management, retail brokerage and private wealth management businesses combine to create an integrated offer, delivered through nearly 1,500 advisors across Canada.

In Wealth Management we seek to grow our business. This growth is supported by three strategic priorities:

  1. Attract and deepen client relationships
  2. Seek new sources of domestic assets
  3. Pursue acquisitions and investments

Wholesale Banking

Wholesale Banking provides a wide range of credit, capital markets, investment banking and research products and services to government, institutional, corporate and retail clients in Canada and in key markets around the world.

In Wholesale Banking our plan is to grow our business in targeted industries within our defined risk appetite. We expect to achieve this by focusing on three priorities:

  1. Add the most value to our clients in Canada
  2. Serve our clients abroad
  3. Identify and export core capabilities
