The value of advice increases as the challenges and opportunities of capital markets evolve. Leveraging the advice of experts, both internally and externally, is critical to our ability to provide high quality advice. Engaging clients in our wealth management process leads to better outcomes and stronger relationships over time. We are passionate about building long-term relationships and we work with our clients to help them gain confidence in their long-term financial future. We do this by taking every opportunity to connect clients with experts, and help them experience the full value of advice.

Helping you focus on what’s most important to you

We help by providing personalized investment advice and money management to address your needs for growth, income or capital preservation. But we go beyond that to focus on your overall wealth picture, with the support of our RBC Wealth Management team of experts in areas like tax, estate and financial planning. We also work in close collaboration with your existing professional advisors, to align your various financial, investment and philanthropic goals.

The freedom to live the life you want

If you desire greater freedom to focus on what’s really important to you, and the confidence of knowing that your portfolio is in the care of trusted professionals, we invite you to consider Private Investment Management, our premium level of discretionary wealth management. 

Busy professionals and executives, travelers, retirees and snowbirds often find that the greater their wealth, the more time they require every day to manage it. If you are responsible for investing for a not-for-profit organization, foundation or endowment, you may also find that the expertise required to make investment decisions according to specific guidelines can be time-consuming and complex. 

Whether you need your time to focus on your career, manage the needs of an organization or travel outside of the country for long periods, Private Investment Management may be the right solution for you.

How it works

By delegating your investment management to an accredited portfolio manager, who works within your specific investment preferences, constraints and risk tolerance, you can free yourself from and still be confident that your investment plan is on track. Because your approval is not required for every single transaction, we can make time-sensitive decisions quickly, helping you get closer to your investment objectives and freeing you from the burden of daily portfolio decisions. 

A dedicated portfolio manager to serve you 

You can be confident in the management of your wealth, because only experienced investment advisors who have met strict industry-wide qualifications for education, assets under management and investment experience are licensed to provide this level of discretionary investment management. 

Investment policy statements capture your needs

The Investment Policy Statement is your specific mandate that details all your objectives, goals and constraints in managing your portfolio. You can think of it as the charter or master plan that we create to manage your portfolio.

Essential standards for quality and oversight

Every portfolio we build is based on core asset quality requirements that set the standards for security concentration, industry and sector diversification, market capitalization and credit quality. An additional Portfolio Implementation and Risk Monitoring Group monitors the portfolio for alignment with our investment management guidelines and the preferences, constraints and other unique directives set out in your customized Investment Policy Statement. An additional compliance team ensures that your portfolio meets industry regulations and legal standards. By auditing our work, as well as the portfolios we manage, this team can help provide you with even greater peace of mind.
