RBC Wealth Management–U.S. adds $1B advisor team in San Francisco



Team says RBC’s international capabilities, high-touch client-first approach and ease of doing business prompted move to firm that trusted friends say is the “gold standard” in the industry

SAN FRANCISCO (June 17, 2021) – RBC Wealth Management–U.S. today welcomed a team of financial advisors with $1 billion in client assets to its San Francisco office, specializing in goals-based wealth planning for ultra-high-net-worth individuals and families.

The Seidler Cattich Group joins from Wells Fargo and is composed of:

“Ultra-high-net-worth clients require an entirely different level of service,” Seidler said. “Their needs are unique, and advisors need the flexibility and authority to serve them based on those unique needs rather than treat them as a homogenous group. RBC Wealth Management offers high-tech, high-touch, immediate support that ultra-high-net-worth clients deserve. It’s something we’ve heard about from peers who have moved here, and we’ve already experienced it ourselves in the recruiting process.”

Those needs are even more specialized for clients who live or own property abroad, Seidler said. “As part of RBC, one of the largest financial services companies in the world serving 17 million clients in Canada, the U.S. and 34 other countries, we strive to offer international clients a level of expertise and service that is unparalleled.”

Seidler says the team spoke to RBC Wealth Management a few years ago when contemplating a move from UBS. “While what we heard about RBC sounded good, I honestly doubted whether it could all be true,” he said, “but as we’ve learned from friends who have moved here in the past year or so, it’s not only true, but even better than advertised. It’s kind of hard not to take a serious look at a place that people you trust say is the new gold standard in the industry. So here we are.”

“I couldn’t be more proud to welcome this team to RBC Wealth Management,” said Michael Schipper, Northern California complex director. “This is a team with a stellar reputation for serving clients. The fact that they are joining us because of what they’ve heard about RBC’s reputation and how easy it is to do business here speaks volumes.”
