RBC Capital Markets provided wholesale financial services to large corporate, government and institutional clients. RBC Global Services offered specialized transaction processing services to business, commercial, corporate and institutional clients in domestic and select international markets. In 2002, RBC generated total revenues of C$ 15,770 million and a net income of C$ 2898 million.

Besides its more than 1,100 domestic locations, RBC had about 100 offices in the Caribbean and some two dozen additional countries.

Its US operations included brokerage firm RBC Dain Rauscher and RBC Centura Banks, which operated some 250 branches in the Southeast.

RBC had been attempting to increase its presence outside Canada, particularly in the US, where it also owned Chicago-based mortgage lender RBC Mortgage and South Carolina-based Liberty Life Insurance. RBC Centura Banks gave RBC Financial a presence in the technology-rich Research Triangle Park area in North Carolina. RBC had also bought Atlanta-area bank, Eagle Bancorp.

Background Note

The origin of RBC went back to the creation of Merchants Bank in 1864 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, a port city bustling with trade. After being incorporated in 1869 as Merchants Bank of Halifax, the bank added branches in eastern Canada. Merchants opened a branch in Bermuda in 1882. Gold strikes in Canada and Alaska in the late 1890s pushed it into western Canada. The name, Royal Bank of Canada was coined in 1901. RBC moved into its new Montreal headquarters in 1907 and grew by purchasing such banks as Union Bank of Canada (1925).

RBC faltered during the Depression but recovered during the Second World War. After the war, RBC financed the expanding minerals and oil and gas industries. When Castro took power in Cuba, RBC tried to operate its branches under communist rule but sold out to Banco Nacional de Cuba in 1960.
