Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce has let go a group of senior corporate development executives, as the bank looks to cut costs by combining its merchant banking and corporate development groups under one roof.

CIBC was the only large Canadian bank with a stand-alone group doing merchant banking, taking direct stakes in companies that CIBC saw as good investments.

However, since 2006, the current management at CIBC has scaled back the group’s activities.
