April 28, 2010 – We are pleased to announce the launch of our new RBC Global Asset Management advisor website www.rbcadvisor.com, which brings together PH&N Funds and RBC Funds® at one location and reinforces the breadth and depth of our investment solutions.
In addition to the website’s fresh look and design, advisors will benefit from improved navigation tools and a cleaner interface that allow for an enhanced user experience. For added convenience, registered advisors can continue using their current login information.
Among the website’s new features, advisors will benefit from:
