What else would you do?

 

Dagmara Fijalkowski

Global Asset Senior Vice President & Senior Portfolio Manager,

Management Head of Global Fixed Income and Currencies

Toronto, Canada

Dagmara Fijalkowski

What would I do if I weren’t an investment manager at RBC? I’d be an investment manager somewhere else but I’m glad that it ended up being here.

 

Daniel E. Chornous

Global Asset Chief Investment Officer

Management Toronto, Canada

Daniel E. Chornous

I don’t ever think about I wish I was doing something else. This is what I’ve done for 35 years and I want to do for a while yet. And most of the people in this business, and all those who are successful in this business will have pretty much the same answer for you: “What else is there to do? This is what I want to do.”

 

John Utter

Global Asset Head, Institutional Client Service

Management Minneapolis, U.S.

John Utter

If I’m not doing the Head of Client Service at RBC Global Asset Management, I’m serving clients, it’s what I believe in, it’s pretty much in my DNA.

 

Judy Cotte

Global Asset Vice president & Head, Corporate Governance and

Management Responsible Investment

Toronto, Canada

Judy Cotte

I can’t really imagine having a different focus on my career, so I think if I wasn’t focused on responsible investment at RBC, I would probably be at one of our clients helping them do the same.

 

Mike Lee

Global Asset Chief Executive Officer, President & Chief

Management Investment Officer

Minneapolis, U.S.

Mike Lee

I would hope I would be investing money, but I love the markets and managing money. The competitive aspects of trying to beat other firms, to beat our benchmarks, so, I would hope that would be what I would be doing.

 

Sarah Riopelle

Global Asset Vice President & Senior Portfolio Manager,

Management Investment Solutions

Toronto, Canada

Sarah Riopelle

So, I love my job. I wouldn’t be able to work as much as I do and make some of the sacrifices that I have from a family perspective if I didn't love my job. I can’t picture myself doing anything else.

 

Scott Lysakowski

Global Asset Head, Canadian Equity Research

Management Vancouver, Canada

Scott Lysakowski

I can’t think of anything else. You know, I think, there’s a saying: “You find a job you love and you don't work a day in your life.” I truly believe that.

 

Taham Mahimwalla

Global Asset Institutional Portfolio Manager

Management Chicago, U.S.

Taham Mahimwalla

I’m here for the long term. And I see a lot of people who have been here their careers, that speaks a lot about the way RBC treats its employees, the way RBC is just a place to work with. It’s a great place to work for.

 

Bill Tilford

Global Asset Head of Quantitative Investments

Management Toronto, Canada

Bill Tilford

This is what I wanted to do, even as a sell-side analyst I recognized that I wanted to manage people’s money. It’s part of my raison d'etre, the passion to succeed and win and there’s nothing more gratifying quite frankly than going to see a client, be it an institutional pension plan or even a retail investor as we run ETFs now, and how happy they are with our results. And that’s incredibly motivating for me, and the passion to do that. I tell anybody in their careers that you got to find what you love, and this is what I love.
