RBC Global Portfolios build on RBC GAM’s extensive experience in managing portfolio solutions. Using a robust suite of funds that are managed by local teams in global markets, they offer investors a simple solution for their global investing needs.

“RBC Global Asset Management has strategically expanded our global equity and global fixed income capabilities by attracting top talent,” said Doug Coulter, President of RBC GAM Inc. “RBC Global Portfolios bring together the unique strength and expertise of our 22 investment teams located around the world, and RBC iShares ETFs, to provide clients the global solutions they are looking for.”
