RBC Capital Markets continues to build prime brokerage capabilities.

TORONTO and NEW YORK, Jan. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- RBC Capital Markets today announced the hiring of Colin Bugler, a senior banker with extensive international prime brokerage and equity finance experience. Mr. Bugler's mandate is to build prime brokerage relationships in targeted markets globally while maintaining and growing RBC Capital Markets' Canadian market leadership in prime brokerage.

"We're focused on delivering exceptional prime brokerage services in sectors where we have an advantage," said Harry Samuel, who heads up RBC Capital Markets' global foreign exchange and commodities. "For example, we're very strong globally in resources, from sales and trading to research to investment banking -- so we're making a real difference to clients who have mining and energy interests. Another strength we have comes from our acquisition of Carlin Financial Group last year and their focus on emerging hedge funds. Our prime brokerage for this sector is widely recognized as a market leader."

Mr. Bugler, who joins RBC Capital Markets as managing director, equity finance, has extensive experience in international prime brokerage and equity finance with Merrill Lynch and more recently, Bank of Nova Scotia. He will report to Deborah D'Arcy, who manages a Top 15 international treasury operation. RBC is a panel member of BBA LIBOR panels for CAD, GBP and USD.

"Mr. Bugler's international experience will be invaluable to our ongoing expansion of our prime brokerage capability," said Ms. D'Arcy.
