Your Finances in Perspective
Getting the right investment advice is a key part of managing your wealth. But it is just one part of a much bigger picture. You may also require assistance with your finances and taxes, help in planning your retirement, or guidance on how to structure your estate in the most tax-efficient manner. Because all of these aspects of managing wealth are interconnected, we take a coordinated approach.
The Framework for Success
To ensure your portfolio is managed responsibly and in accordance with your financial objectives, we follow a meticulous 6-step management process:
1. Creating Your Personalized Investment Policy
Together, we draft your Investment Policy Statement. This is the document that sets the mandate for us to make the day-to-day investment decisions in your portfolio. It includes factors such as your return expectations, income requirements, risk tolerance, time horizon, unique preferences, and other factors that may matter to you on a personal level.
Based on your Investment Policy Statement, we are able to recommend the ideal asset-allocation model for your portfolio. This is the most important factor in determining the balance between managing risk and providing higher returns; how your portfolio is divided among the three main asset classes - cash, fixed income and equities.
2. Constructing Your Portfolio
When selecting your investments, we combine our understanding of overall global economic and market trends with fundamental research of individual investment opportunities. We draw from senior economists, portfolio strategists and research analysts within the RBC Financial Group to augment our own insights in these key areas.
3. Managing Your Portfolio
Markets and economic conditions can shift quickly. When you have our private investment management working for you, we make day-to-day investment decisions to anticipate and respond to the changing economic landscape. All management decisions, both long term and short term, are made in accordance with the guidelines you established with us in your Investment Policy Statement.
4. Third-Party Review and Monitoring
Your portfolio is constantly monitored by the RBC Investments Portfolio Implementation and Risk Monitoring Team. This independent group ensures your private portfolio manager is acting in accordance with your Investment Policy Statement as well as the fundamental investment management guidelines established by Private Investment Management.
5. Adjusting Your Investment Strategy
Your goals may change over time. Therefore, regular, periodic reviews ensure that your Investment Policy Statement is still accurate, and reflects your current objectives.
6. Keeping You Informed
You will receive a monthly account statement that details the activity in your portfolio with the current market value of all your positions. You also have access to your accounts and timely market information through our online services.
