Why RBC Portfolio Solutions?

Through the simplicity of one investment decision, investors in an RBC Portfolio Solution benefit from:

  • Diversification by asset class, geography and industry sector
  • Expert asset allocation and ongoing monitoring
  • Professional and active management of RBC Global Asset Management

Diversification

Markets are unpredictable and no single asset class continuously leads the market. Choosing a diversified portfolio with a carefully selected mix of investments ensures your portfolio is always positioned to take advantage of opportunities in Canada and around the world. Diversification also helps to limit the impact of a downturn in any one market or sector.

No Single Asset Class Consistently Leads the Market Every Year

Asset allocation and ongoing monitoring

The mix of stocks and bonds is a key determinant of portfolio success. But the right mix for each investor depends on investment objectives, time horizon and risk tolerance. That’s why we have a variety of Portfolio Solutions to meet your investment needs, whether you are accumulating savings, investing for income, or saving for your child’s education.

At RBC Global Asset Management, we strive to add value to your investments by continuously monitoring the markets and actively applying research-driven investment management to each RBC Portfolio Solution. Our portfolio managers employ fundamental, quantitative and technical analytical methods to evaluate securities in each fund.
