·1 min read

The parties expect the deal to receive the necessary regulatory approvals in the first half of 2022, Toronto-based Ontario Teachers’ said Wednesday in a statement. The purchase price wasn’t disclosed.

The deal would bolster Ontario Teachers’ financial-services holdings, giving it control of Canada’s largest provider of reverse mortgages as the country’s aging population bolsters demand for the financial product. HomeQ’s HomeEquity Bank had about C$4 billion ($3.1 billion) of assets as of November 2020. Toronto-Dominion Bank’s TD Securities advised Ontario Teachers’ on the transaction.

Birch Hill, based in Toronto, bought HomeQ in 2012 in a deal valued at about C$136 million.
