  1. There may be some headwinds from within Canada, but RY’s growing American banking network should do well. Where US operations bring in $US revenue. From what I have read recently, they are working hard at breaking into the higher ranks of M&A within the States. Hopefully those efforts work out and provide another source of income for us shareholders 🙂

    • I hear you, DW. The US operations are growing and will provide some good hedging for the banks – RY seems to be looking in the right place. High net worth individuals and asset management is where they make a lot of money – and buying out CNY seems right up their alley. I am not a shareholder yet, but wouldnt mind buying into RY.
