CIBC (TSX:CM) has completed its purchase of Atlantic Trust Private Wealth Management, a US$210-million deal announced in April.

The Toronto-based bank says the former Invesco unit will help CIBC grow its wealth management business across North America.

Atlantic Trust has locations in 12 major U.S. centres and manages roughly US$24-billion in assets on behalf of its clients.
