RBC Global Asset Management Inc. announces changes to five RBC ETF ticker symbols

TORONTO, April 19, 2017 - RBC Global Asset Management Inc. today announced forthcoming changes to the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) ticker symbols of five RBC ETFs.

The following RBC ETFs will begin trading with the new ticker symbols effective May 9, 2017:
