Marlo Kravetsky led the internal investigation of the most significant securities regulatory issue facing a bank-owned investment dealer in recent history. The case concerned structural issues within TD’s systems that led to qualifying clients not being placed in lower-cost- proprietary mutual-fund products and embedded advisor fees not being excluded from the fixed-account management fee in fee-based investment accounts. She was responsible for self-reporting to the Ontario Securities Commission and industry groups. She developed a remediation program ensuring fair treatment to affected clients, managed remediation across four business lines and developed a legal strategy to manage regulatory risk. She also led settlement of a several-hundred-million-dollar claim against TD in the collapse of the Icelandic banking system following the 2008 financial crisis. Marlo is a member of the diversity and inclusion committee of the Bank Group’s legal department.
