Toronto-headquartered TD Securities has confirmed plans to expand its Irish operations, including the establishment of a bond trading business subject to the necessary regulatory approval.
Part of TD Bank Group, TD Securities employs 3,800 people in 13 offices worldwide and has been in Ireland for the past 20 years, where it currently employs under 10 people. The company says the Dublin expansion is part of its growth strategy in Europe.

Peter Walker, the firm's Vice Chair and Regional Head Europe & Asia-Pacific, said expansion of the Dublin office would 'position us well for all outcomes of Brexit negotiations.' TD Securities' fully licensed broker-dealer would continue to benefit from Ireland’s commitment to economic growth, he added. It is understood the expansion could result in a more than threefold expansion of its Irish workforce.
