TD Bank

As one of the most active banks expanding inside the eastern U.S., TD Bank is another ‘lucky’ bank to have made it through the recent recessionary period without serious injury. TD Bank can easily be found on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker TD, and they are seen as a solid opportunity for investors who are looking to net lease.

Primarily, this is due to their credit strength, along with stable financials and NNN leasing terms. With excellent real estate selections in various city and rural markets, TD will construct 3500-4800 sq. ft. structures on average between 1-1 1/2 acre parcels. They are almost always sold as un-subordinated, NNN ground leases.

TD Bank

TD Bank understands this desirability for these types of arrangements, and will usually offer primary terms ranging from fifteen to twenty years having up to five separate 5 year options to renew. Add to this an approximate rental increase of about ten to fifteen percent every 5 years.

Tenant Description

As a member of the TD Bank Financial Group of Toronto, CA, TD Bank has become one of the top ten leading banking service providers in all of North America. While ranking amongst the top 15 biggest commercial size banking institutions, they are also referred to as ‘America’s Most Convenient Bank®’ and can be found quite simply under the NYSE stock ticker TD.

Having a strong influence throughout the much of the Eastern part of the U.S., they now employ over twenty three thousand throughout their 1000+ retail branch locations, and service nearly six and a half million customers altogether. In fact, they have also become one of the biggest insurance companies in their regional markets.

With a nearly ancient history dating back to the early 1850’s, they founded the first branch in Portland, ME, going from Portland Savings over to Peoples Heritage Bank in the early 1980’s. For over 150 years, TD Bank has continued to provide a wide assortment of consumer and business-based financial services and wealth management products.

During the turn of the millennium (2000), Peoples Heritage Bank was involved in a series of acquisitions that changed the name to Banknorth. Then in 2004, TD Bank Financial Group had increased their shares substantially, eventually changing the name into TD Banknorth. Only a few years later, through another round of acquisitions and mergers, TD Bank had been formed in 2009. At that time, many previous entities merged into one conglomerate in what came to be known as “America’s Most Convenient Bank®”.
