TORONTO, June 4, 2007 — RBC Asset Management Inc. today announced record May net long term fund sales of $514 million. Money market net sales were $67 million for a total of $581 million in overall net sales for the month.

Assets under management have increased by $16.2 billion or 26 per cent over the same period.

"Our record results in May reflect the strength of our product line, our focus on value and performance and our distribution relationships," said Brenda Vince, president, RBC Asset Management. "We have built a client-focused business that can deliver strong results year-round."
