About RBC Wealth Management

Your values, needs and goals are unique. We take the time to understand them so we can create a strategic wealth plan that reflects what’s important to you.

At RBC Wealth Management, we believe the greatest returns are realised when you grow more than wealth. Your aspirations may involve your family, your business or the legacy you want to leave. We can help you navigate opportunities, changes and challenges as they happen.

Our history – from 1869 to today

The very beginning
In 1869, Royal Bank of Canada (RBC), originally known as Merchants’ Bank of Halifax, was incorporated in Nova Scotia.

1901 – a bond-focused start

RBC Wealth Management’s early business was established in Toronto. The business focused on underwriting and distributing government and municipal bonds – and began to expand leading up to the First World War.

1910 – crossing the pond

RBC’s international expansion gathers pace with the opening of an office in London.

1929 – forming the RBC Art Collection

From modest beginnings, the collection now includes over 5,000 works – with pieces housed in RBC offices in the British Isles, Canada and the U.S.

Today, RBC’s arts programme spans a number of global partnerships and initiatives focused on supporting the next generation of artists.

1962 to 1973

1962 – growth into the Channel Islands
RBC extends its regional footprint into Jersey, at the time, a fledgling but growing finance centre.

1973 – further growth
Major global financial institutions make a mark in Guernsey, including RBC.

2005 to 2016

2005 – bolstering our strength
RBC acquires Abacus, a leading international financial services group with roots in the British Isles.

2016 – a new home in Jersey
RBC further demonstrates its commitment to Jersey by relocating to new waterfront offices at Gaspé House.

2021 – better together in London

RBC moved the Capital Markets, Wealth Management and Investor and Treasury Services businesses to the iconic and highly sustainable new building at 100 Bishopsgate – the largest building by volume in the Square Mile.

2022 – a new acquisition

Royal Bank of Canada acquires Brewin Dolphin, the start of the journey to create a combined wealth business in the UK and Ireland.
