OMAHA, Neb., March 12, 2013 – TD Ameritrade Holding Corporation (NYSE: AMTD) and the United States Olympic Committee are pleased to announce that TD Ameritrade has renewed its sponsorship of the USOC and the 2014 and 2016 U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Teams.
TD Ameritrade was the first-ever USOC partner in the online broker category for the 2012 U.S. Olympic Team. Going forward, the company has broadened its commitment to the country’s top athletes to include the 2014 and 2016 U.S. Paralympic Teams and the 2015 U.S. Pan and Parapan American Teams. The company has also expanded its sponsorship category to include not only online brokerage, but personal investing and wealth management as well, representing the full line-up of investment products and services it offers to today’s individual investors.
“Following a successful partnership with the USOC in 2012, we wanted to evolve it to include areas of our business, such as personal investing and wealth management, that are growing in importance for Americans,” said Fred Tomczyk, president and chief executive officer of TD Ameritrade. “Our theme, ‘It’s amazing how far you can go with a little help along the way,’ is a powerful message that speaks to all of us, whether you are an athlete going for the gold or an individual investor planning your financial future. We look forward to sharing more of those inspirational stories to our clients, associates and fans across the country over the next three years.”
“TD Ameritrade’s support of the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Teams helps enable our athletes to pursue their dreams, a premise reinforced by TD Ameritrade’s core principles," said USOC Chief Executive Officer Scott Blackmun. "Our continued partnership through 2016 will provide significant resources to support America’s top athletes, while providing the distinctive value of investing in the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Teams. We look forward to working with TD Ameritrade in supporting and promoting the U.S. Olympic Movement in the years ahead.”
The renewal discussions between the USOC and TD Ameritrade once again included a cooperative, coordinated process with NBC Olympics.
