Like many securities firms, RBC Capital Markets receives payments from fund companies. RBC Capital Markets uses this money for general marketing and Financial Professional educational programs, to offset compliance and product management costs, and to support client education programs and seminars. In return for the payments, fund companies are given access to branch offices for the purpose of educating Financial Professionals and informing them about available products. Financial Professionals do not receive any extra commission for selling funds from these companies. Each Financial Professional individually evaluates the funds and then works with you to choose the appropriate investment for your financial needs. RBC CM has a conflict of interest associated with utilizing these third party providers that make payments to RBC.
RBC Capital Markets receives payments from certain mutual fund affiliates annually as a percentage of the value of fund assets held with RBC Capital Markets. These payments are used in part to offset costs that RBC Capital Markets incurs in connection with providing certain operational and administrative services which may include sending shareholder statements, maintaining shareholder records, performing regulatory mailings, and monitoring prospectus requirements. More information on these payments may be found in a fund’s prospectus or Statement of Additional Information.
