Advancing Careers for Women

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, a new service model is increasingly important - that is, to work with someone who can relate to women's needs and challenges.

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.
