"We recognize that retaining and advancing women is important to the future growth of our business, and that it will help us provide a superior client experience. Therefore, it is a priority at RBC Dominion Securities to help women succeed, and make our firm a great place for them to run a successful and rewarding wealth management practice"

David Agnew , CEO, RBC Dominion Securities

Women in Wealth Management

RBC Dominion Securities is not a traditional ‘stock broker' firm. As our clients' needs have evolved, so has our business. Today's client wants and needs an advisor who can help plan their whole financial life.

This is a great time for women to consider a career in wealth management because the role extends far beyond making investment recommendations. Our advisors are wealth managers—in addition to managing investment portfolios they can also help their clients with complex family wealth issues and achieve important life and financial goals like protecting their income, starting a business, minimizing tax on family expenses, planning for retirement and leaving a legacy.

At RBC Dominion Securities, it is important to us that our workforce reflects the experiences and perspectives of our clients. As the number of women heading households and managing their families' finances grows, so do their products and services needs, but they do want a different service model, and to work with someone who can relate to their needs and challenges.

A Career at RBC Dominion Securities

There are many versions of success in our business, and with the support of RBC Dominion Securities you can build a business practice that fits your lifestyle and unique skill set. We focus on the client first –you have the freedom and flexibility to build a service model that meets your clients' individual needs. Backed by the strength of our industry-leading resources, both you and your client have the support to build a successful financial future.

As part of our ongoing commitment to the career success of women in our firm, RBC Dominion Securities has established a Women's Advisory Board with the goal of fostering an environment that supports and attracts women. The Board hosts regular business building conference calls, networking events and has established the first-of-its-kind national Annual Women in Wealth Management Symposium.

It takes hard work and personal initiative to build a successful practice, but with the support of your branch management team and the many resources available at RBC Dominion Securities, you can build a business that's right for you.
