Royal Bank of Canada Reviews Asia Wealth Business

Royal Bank of Canada is reportedly putting its Asian wealth management business under review which could lead to its sale. This comes after several Western banks have withdrawn from private banking in Asia.

The review was triggered because the bank’s global Head of Wealth Management feels the Asian business which has less than $10 billion in assets lacks the scale to generate sufficient profit.
