TD Bank has signed a deal to acquire Saskatchewan-based money manager Greystone Managed Investments Inc. in a stock-and-cash agreement worth roughly $792 million.

TD says the addition of Greystone's $36 billion in assets under management will make TD Asset Management the largest money manager in the country, based on Canadian assets.

The bank's group head of wealth management and TD insurance Leo Salom says the acquisition beefs up its expertise in alternative investments such as real estate, mortgages and infrastructure.
