Dec 5 (Reuters) - TD Bank Group reported a 3.5% fall in fourth-quarter profit on Thursday, as Canada’s second-biggest lender by market value was hurt by higher provisions for loan losses and a restructuring charge.
Net income fell to C$2.86 billion ($2.15 billion), or C$1.54 per share, in quarter ended Oct. 31, from C$2.96 billion, or C$1.58 per share, a year earlier.
Excluding items, the lender earned C$1.59 per share.
