Dexia Investor Services. "We appreciate the recognition from Global
Investor and are extremely proud of the results."
One RBC Dexia client in the survey noted: "We work very well with RBC
Dexia's client relationship team, who are proactive, listen and
understand our needs. This is coupled with excellent responsive times
and knowledgeable discussions on how we move forward together
benefiting our mutual clients."

best known and most respected surveys in the custody industry, polling
more than a thousand global custody clients, including banks,
