Karen Myers
Director, Financial Resource Management

Karen is one of the founding volunteers of the European Inclusion and Diversity Committee (EIDC), where she initially helped lead the Experience resource group, which supports colleague experience with community-focused events and resources and supports for families, and subsequently has taken on co-leadership of the Forever Proud resource group, a community for 2SLGBTQ+ colleagues and allies. She has been instrumental in bringing resource groups, businesses and Human Resources together to increase insights and execute common goals to foster an inclusive work environment. Karen has worked at TD since 2004 and has forged strong business relationships, leading to a collaborative work environment and successful business outcomes.

What I Do:

My team assists with Derivative X-Value Adjustment (xVA) and Return on Equity pricing. I'm also actively involved in optimizing our financial resources (i.e., risk-weighted assets, leverage, funding charges), including from a strategic direction perspective and a localized standpoint for London and Dublin.

Proud Moment:

Winning one of the inaugural TD Securities Pinnacle Awards in 2014. The Pinnacle Award is an annual award that recognizes TD Securities colleagues for an outstanding performance in their role and for contributing greatly to the company. It the highest distinction given at TD Securities and being a recipient meant a lot to me.

Advice to My Younger Self:

Spend as much time networking with colleagues as you do with industry peers. If you're based in a smaller regional hub, try increasing your networking across jurisdictions, as well as forming those personal connections -- even if mainly done electronically. I always value personal connections, and focusing on them is a sure way to 'get things done' as expediently as possible.
