With COVID-19 fueling the emphasis on sustainable business practices and accelerating ESG trends, we are focused on helping our clients achieve their sustainability ambitions.

RBC Capital Markets is stepping up its commitment of people and capital to environmental, social and governance, or ESG, opportunities. Mr. Neldner said: “We think it’s the right thing to do, but there’s also a huge commercial opportunity around ESG, and our clients are laser-focused on its importance.”


We are committed to adding value to clients through an ESG lens as deal making volume increases in 2021 and companies pursue strategic opportunities. 

Mr. Neldner expects the post-pandemic landscape to be dominated by deals, as companies and private-equity fund managers take advantage of low interest rates and a rebounding economy: “We anticipate significant M&A activity in the year ahead.”
