RBC Investor & Treasury Services’ Trade Management Service adopted by Genus Capital Management

TORONTO, December 5, 2022 — RBC Investor & Treasury Services (“RBC I&TS”) today announced the adoption of its middle office end-to-end post trade execution service - Trade Management - by long-standing client, Genus Capital Management (“Genus”), the Vancouver-based independent investment management firm.

RBC Investor & Treasury Services’ Trade Management service delivers 24/6 coverage for all markets, providing near real-time transparency on the complete ‘post-execution’ trade lifecycle, broker performance, and settlement risk. The service provides Genus with increased control and visibility of its funds’ trading activity, providing a scalable, resilient, global operating model.

In response to regulatory and investor demands on the middle office to standardize its processes and automate operating models, RBC’s Trade Management service enables firms to optimize their operational performance by removing manual processing; grow their businesses through jurisdiction and asset class expansion; mitigate the risk of failed settlements; and manage regulatory and market changes.  

Paul Folk, MD, Head of Asset Managers, RBC I&TS, said: “We are proud to be able to offer our modular middle office solutions to clients such as Genus. Our Trade Management platform provides Genus with access to RBC’s global trade management expertise, supporting its expansion into new markets and cross-border transactions, and enabling the firm to respond to evolving regulatory and market changes.”

Stephen Au, CEO, Genus, added: “We are pleased to have extended our relationship with RBC I&TS to include Trade Management services, and look forward to our continuing relationship with the team. We are confident that the Trade Management platform will help to drive Genus’ growth by providing the data visualization tools required to give us even better oversight of our processes and risks.”
