RBC Global Asset Management continues integration with BlueBay Asset Management in the U.S.
MINNEAPOLIS, July 19, 2021 – RBC Global Asset Management today announced steps to further align RBC Global Asset Management (U.S.) Inc. (“RBC GAM-U.S.”) and BlueBay Asset Management USA LLC (“BlueBay-U.S.”) in the U.S. in order to further streamline the investment solution and service offering to its U.S. clients.
RBC GAM and BlueBay will combine their respective U.S. fixed income teams into a single multi-disciplinary team, and consolidate the businesses’ U.S. legal entity structure, with BlueBay-U.S. merging with and into RBC GAM-U.S.
These changes enable RBC GAM to offer U.S. clients a wider spectrum of investment capabilities that draw on the combined team’s full breadth of expertise on a single investment platform.
BlueBay, an active fixed income specialist, has been an affiliate of RBC GAM and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Royal Bank of Canada since 2010. The two firms have complementary strengths, specialization, and expertise, and proven investment processes. RBC GAM and BlueBay share a strong culture of collaboration, and over the past decade have pursued opportunities to bring together and align business functions and processes.
Subject to regulatory requirements and any necessary approvals, these changes will take effect on or about November 1, 2021.
There is no change to the personnel, executive management or office locations of RBC GAM-U.S. or BlueBay-U.S.
