TORONTO, Aug. 6 /CNW/ - Royal Bank of Canada (RY on TSX and NYSE) today
announced that revised Q2 2008 Supplementary Financial Information is now
available on its website.
The historical comparative segment financial information was revised to
reflect the realignment of its business segments, effective May 1, 2008 which
was announced on April 11, 2008. The realignment resulted in the creation of a
new Insurance segment, formerly a business under Canadian Banking, which
provides a wide range of creditor, life, health, travel, home and auto
insurance products and services to individual and business clients in Canada
and the U.S. as well as reinsurance for clients globally.
The realignment also resulted in the U.S. & International Banking segment
being renamed as International Banking. Royal Bank of Canada now consists of
five business segments: Canadian Banking, Wealth Management, Insurance,
International Banking and Capital Markets.
The revised historical segment financial information for Canadian Banking
and Insurance does not impact the previously reported consolidated financial
information of Royal Bank of Canada.
The revised Q2 2008 Supplementary Financial Information reflecting the
new reporting segments is available for download at
