John Taft, head of wealth management at RBC Wealth Management, says that although RBC is working to expand in capital and wealth management markets in the U.S., quality is his top priority. "Our focus is entirely on quality and excellence, not on scale," Taft said, noting that RBC has roughly 2,000 advisors. "We think that's large enough to be relevant and meaningful, but small enough to be intimate. We're happy with the scale. We're just committed to being better in every way: hiring the best advisors, putting the best products and services on our shelf, and continuing to build out our technology and operational platform."
