RBC Dexia voted top global custodian for sixth consecutive year

    LONDON, May 11 /CNW/ - RBC Dexia Investor Services has been ranked number
one overall in the Global Investor 2009 Global Custody Survey and also took
the top spot in 14 of the survey's key categories. This now marks the sixth
consecutive year that RBC Dexia has been awarded the top position in this
international survey, which is based on feedback from institutional investors
on the quality of service they receive from their global custodians.
    Caroline Allen, Editor of Global Investor magazine commented: "RBC Dexia
has won the independently compiled Global Investor Global Custody Survey for
the sixth year in a row. Considering the corporate and technical evolution in
the sector over that time, this is remarkable in itself. But comments from the
poll returns indicate there is extraordinary client loyalty to a brand and a
firm that remains responsive, innovative and thorough. In the turbulent times
investors have experienced recently, they clearly prefer to stick with firms
they can trust to deliver product and service."

    In addition to its top overall ranking, RBC Dexia was voted:

      -  No.1 by the Billionaire's Club (unweighted)

a sixth consecutive year," said José Placido, Chief Executive Officer of RBC
Dexia Investor Services. "Our client relationships are exceptionally important
and these user-nominated results are testament to our commitment to the high
quality delivery of service across the globe."
