"We are proud to continue to provide Canadian investors with award-winning investment management and the tools to help them reach their financial goals in a constantly changing retirement landscape," said Doug Coulter, president of RBC GAM.

As a complement to the new product line, RBC GAM has also launched the Retirement Resource Centre, which has been engineered to help educate investors in planning for their future.
