RBC Asset Management Inc. and Phillips, Hager & North
October sales results

TORONTO, November 3, 2009 — RBC Asset Management Inc. (RBC AM) and Phillips, Hager & North (PH&N) announced October net redemptions of $884 million. Money market funds had net redemptions of $1.4 billion and long term funds had net sales of $477 million. Assets under management decreased by $2.5 billion, or 2.5 per cent, in October.

"Long-term fund sales continued to be the dominant trend in October," said Doug Coulter, president of RBC AM. "Strong appetite for fixed income solutions translated into robust inflows into our individual mutual funds as well as our Portfolio Solutions, which attracted $303 million of net sales. As investors sought additional sources of yield combined with a conservative investment approach, the Select Conservative Portfolio and Select Very Conservative Portfolio proved popular, capturing over half of portfolio sales."
