Canada's best investment bank 2020: RBC Capital Markets

Awards for Excellence 2020

Until the coronavirus crisis, it was a familiar year for RBC Capital Markets in the awards period. As usual, the bank faced strong individual competitors in almost every business, product or sector in which it operates, but no firm rivals it across the board.

The portfolio effect of its leading or close-to-leading positions across its businesses and outperformance in those areas where market volumes were down make it, once again, Canada’s best investment bank.
