Charles Schwab Corp said on Monday it would acquire TD Ameritrade Holding Corp in an all-stock deal valued at US$26-billion, combining the two largest USA discount brokerages.
TD Ameritrade stockholders would receive 1.0837 Schwab shares for each TD Ameritrade share they own. Schwab, America's original discount broker, will now have even more sway over the sector it pioneered almost a half-century ago.

The Canadian lender will have two new seats on the combined firm's board, while TD Ameritrade will name a single director. Schwab is already the dominant player in the industry with $3.8 trillion in client assets, and TD Ameritrade would add another $1.3 trillion to that pot, reports CNBC.
