For some time RBC Capital Markets has been the biggest and most successful Canadian investment bank. When it made the decision to become a global investment bank it was careful about how it implemented that strategy. It is now reaping the benefits of that earlier caution.
Five years ago RBC CM was a universal bank in its domestic market with a middle-market focus in the US, a global niche approach in fixed income and a specialist strategy in investment banking areas such as mining and metals where clearly, given Canada’s prominence as a commodities producer, there is a natural fit. The ambitions were limited but that was understandable.
