RBC's wealth management unit is known for its well-capitalized silent parent, the Royal Bank of Canada.

 

But despite that kind of backing, CEO John Taft says he's switched to recruiting high-end advisors and making sure the ones he has can work more effectively.

 

He's not competing with the Morgan Stanleys of the world, but with the white-glove ultra-high-net-worth operations like Northern Trust and Bessemer Trust.

 

As a result, he says he has no interest in the kind of M&A that originally turned the unit into a $220 billion powerhouse with continent-spanning reach.

 

And that means we can all cross off a potential buyer for the broker-dealers that are currently out there for sale.
