Investment Strategy & Research
To help you achieve your investment goals, your Investment Advisor has direct access to leading edge investment strategy and research.
The RBC Investments Strategy Committee, comprised of senior representatives from various parts of the firm, provides regular analysis of market conditions and direction on investment policy. After considering data provided by our four analytical disciplines - Economics, Fundamental Research, Quantitative Research and Technical Analysis - the Strategy Committee makes a series of recommendations on portfolio structure for the coming 12 months, including:
- The optimum mix of stocks, bonds, and cash for each "investor profile"
- The suggested term-to-maturity for fixed income instruments
- A "Focus List" of approximately 20 top-ranked Canadian equities
Your Investment Advisor has exclusive access to the top-ranked investment research from our team of about 60 analysts. The RBC Capital Markets Research Department covers every major sector and over 300 companies. All of our research analysts have outstanding qualifications and proven capabilities. Many are recognized as among the best in their field.
Our Research Department helps your Investment Advisor identify opportunity in the capital markets through regular research reports in our four analytical disciplines: Economics, Fundamental Research, Quantitative Research and Technical Analysis.
Through our partnerships with several U.S. firms, we offer comprehensive coverage of U.S. and international markets.
