TORONTO, Jan. 11 /CNW/ - Even though the height of the gift-giving season
is behind us, RBC Direct Investing is starting the new year by giving
self-directed investors a chance to win(*) a grand prize of $25,000 to invest.
For every $15,000 clients deposit or transfer into a new or existing RBC
Direct Investing account from other sources, they will be automatically
entered for a chance to win the grand prize. There are also other ways in
which to enter. Clients can set up an automatic investment plan with a minimum
of $100 per month to earn a chance to win. RBC will also cover transfer fees
up to $125 for investors who transfer-in $15,000 or more.
"Our 'Win $25,000 to Invest' contest is being held at a time when people
tend to think about how they want to manage their investments in the new year.
And who wouldn't want an extra $25,000 to invest?" said Doug Coulter,
president and CEO, RBC Direct Investing. "This contest demonstrates our
ongoing commitment to provide self-directed investors with greater value and
rewards for their business."
At RBC Direct Investing, investors can qualify for trade commissions as
low as $6.95 flat (www.rbcdirectinvesting.com/lowtrades) and have exclusive
access to over 40 Series D RBC Funds across a variety of asset classes with
significantly lower management fees starting from 0.60 per cent
"With Series D pricing, lower commissions for more clients, and a chance
to win $25,000 to invest, we believe RBC Direct Investing offers self-directed
investors outstanding value in the online brokerage marketplace," Mr. Coulter
The contest is open to new and existing RBC Direct Investing clients and
runs between January 2 to March 28, with the winner selected on April 21.
