TORONTO (Reuters) - Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CM.TO: Quote) (CM.N: Quote) has agreed to acquire MFS McLean Budden's private wealth business, which manages about $1.4 billion in assets for high-net-worth individuals, families, endowments and foundations.

Terms of the deal, which is expected to close in the fourth-quarter of this year, were not disclosed in CIBC's statement on Tuesday.

CIBC said the deal solidifies its position as one of Canada's fastest growing wealth managers.
