Today, more and more investors are discovering that the key to successfully managing their cash and investments is by establishing one convenient, flexible and comprehensive account as the foundation for their finances. An Investment Access Account can provide this foundation. It's an account that provides you with what you need, when you need it.

When you don't need your cash, it should be working for you. But when you need money, it should be easily accessible. And when your money needs to move from one place to another, the more automatic the better. Our Investment Access Account provides several options for easily accessing your cash. Some of these options include:

RBC Correspondent Services and/or RBC Advisor Services are not tax or legal advisors. All decisions regarding the tax implications of your investments should be made in connection with your independent tax, legal or estate planning advisor.
An investment in a money market fund is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) or any other government agency. Although the funds seek to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, it is possible to lose money by investing in the funds.
RBC Express Credit is a margin product and may not be suitable for all investors. If the securities in your account decline in value, so does the value of the collateral supporting your loan, and, as a result, the firm can take action, such as to issue a margin call and/or sell securities or other assets in any of your accounts held with the member, in order to maintain the required equity in the account. Before you sign a Margin Agreement, it is important that you read and fully understand the Margin Disclosure Statement, which describes additional risks involved in trading securities on margin.
