At RBC Royal Bank Private Banking, our service philosophy revolves around our personal relationships with each of our clients. That’s why, rather than presenting you with a selection of Private Banking packages, we’ll invest time at the front end, getting to know you, your family and your goals.

Then, using our exclusive wealth planning process, we’ll complete a multi-step analysis of your liquidity, debt and risk management, investments and estate plan. Next, we distil this understanding of you and your family into a wealth plan that addresses your needs today and helps you create the path to a better future.

Finally, we bring the experts together from within and outside RBC to bring every aspect of your plan to life.

First in line to deliver your Private Banking experience is your dedicated Private Banker, who is supported by a Private Banking Associate and a specialized service response team. Each member of your team understands your complete financial picture.

Collectively, their purpose is to help you achieve your goals while assisting you with the ongoing management of your finances. To ensure the proactivity and responsiveness you expect in a private banking relationship, each Private Banker manages a finite group of clients.

Our Client Profile

Private Banking clients are typically business owners, wealthy families, executives or professionals who prefer personal relationships with a trusted advisor and team, to dealing with multiple service providers.
