Canadian wealth inequality at its worst since 1960, RBC wealth management says

Wealth inequality in Canada has reached its lowest level since 1960 with the top 10 per cent of earners taking home over half the country’s wealth, a new report from the RBC Wealth Management Group shows.

According to the report, the richest 10 per of the 10 per set out to capture more than half of the countrys wealth in 2020, while the bottom half captured less than half.

In a sign of growing inequality, the top 0.1 per cent captured more than 10 per to one of the entire population in 2020.

“In the first half of 2020, the bottom 40 per cent gained more wealth from all sources than the top 40 per of wealth,” said RBC Senior Vice President Michael J. Miller.

“The gap between the bottom and top 40 is widening, and that is what is really troubling.”

The report found that the top 20 per cent took home almost three times as much wealth in 2016 as the bottom 20 per of Canada’s population.

The richest 40 per group had a net gain of almost $2.4 billion in 2020 compared to the bottom 50 per group’s net gain, the report found.

Overall, the wealth gap between wealthy Canadians and the rest of the population was also wider in 2020 than in 2016, with the richest 20 per group having a net loss of $5.4 trillion, or nearly 40 per per cent.

RBC said in a statement the report showed the “real impact” of the wealth inequality was still to come in 2020 as well as the impact on wealth distribution.

Canada has the highest proportion of billionaires in the world at over one-third, and in 2020 the top 1 per cent had more wealth than the bottom 95 per cent combined, according to the U.S. billionaire census report.

However, the number of billionaires has fallen from nearly four million in 2016 to just under 3 million in 2020 and is now the smallest proportion of the total population since World War II, according the report.

Powerhouse asset manager invests $100M in RBC wealth management unit

RBC Wealth Management’s investment in the RBCs Wealth Management unit is worth an estimated $100 million, according to a company statement.

The investment will help RBC build out a wealth management team that will include executives and investors who have a focus on investment strategy, market research, capital markets and strategic investments.

The team will also be led by a global board of directors.

RBC’s wealth management arm has been focused on improving wealth management capabilities for clients for more than a decade, as the bank’s portfolio has grown over the past decade.

In 2018, the bank acquired assets including its financial services arm and asset management arm, which collectively owned about $300 billion.

The company’s chief executive officer, James Sullenberger, will lead the Rbc Wealth Management team.

The move will enable RBC to accelerate the expansion of its wealth management portfolio, which includes a wealth manager in Australia and a wealth portfolio in the United Kingdom.

Rbc will also expand its global wealth portfolio by building out its portfolio of global investment products, as well as its international wealth management products, which include assets and funds in the U.K. and the U.” 

The RBC Global Wealth Management portfolio is a key asset for the company, and a key component of RBC Vision 2020.

RBA’s vision is to increase RBC and its clients’ wealth while maintaining a low risk profile.

RBS Wealth Management and RBC will share a wealth managing team with each other, but the team will be different in terms of mission, capabilities and management.

RSB Wealth Management is also looking to increase its wealth portfolio and work with other financial institutions, while RBC plans to focus on its core asset, the wealth portfolio.

The RBC Investment team is comprised of some of the best and brightest global wealth managers in the world, who will work closely together to achieve our vision for the world to be a better place.

RIB has also been investing heavily in the wealth management market, recently announcing $5 billion in new investments to expand its wealth and wealth management services.

In addition, the company will be focusing on investing in emerging markets in 2019.

Trump’s tax plan: $2.9 trillion to go before Congress

Trump’s proposed tax bill would reduce the tax burden on high-income earners by $2,9 trillion over a decade, according to a new report from the conservative Heritage Foundation.

The $2 trillion in tax cuts would be distributed between those earning over $250,000 per year and those making between $200,000 and $500,000.

That would make the proposed plan the most generous tax cut in U.S. history, according the report, which was commissioned by the president’s administration.

In 2018, the Tax Policy Center estimated that the tax plan would raise between $2 billion and $3 billion in revenue over the next decade.

The report noted that the plan would have a major impact on how much Americans save for retirement and would help people save for their own retirement.

For example, the plan’s corporate rate would drop from 35 percent to 25 percent, a drop of more than 10 percentage points.

The proposal would also cut the number of tax brackets from seven to four, while raising the standard deduction from $12,000 to $24,000, a tax break that the GOP is looking to expand.

The plan would also lower the standard mortgage deduction from up to $1,000 from $1.5 million to $750, and eliminate the personal exemption.

The tax cuts are not retroactive.

The president’s proposed plan would be phased in over five years, with some provisions phased in after 2020.

The Tax Policy Project estimated that it would raise $2 in annual revenue over 10 years.

The group also noted that while the tax cuts for high-wage earners are substantial, there are also significant provisions that will make the plan less generous to low-wage workers.

“These tax cuts don’t create a permanent, universal middle-class tax cut, but rather an additional tax hike on millions of Americans and an additional layer of deductions on their paychecks that will be even more difficult to collect and administer,” the group wrote.

Trump’s proposal would allow corporations to write off up to 35 percent of their tax bill, which the GOP calls a “border adjustment.”

That would mean that companies would be able to write that off, but they would not be able just to deduct it from their income.

The House passed the House-passed Tax Cuts and Jobs Act earlier this month, and it has since passed the Senate.

Republicans have said they want to pass the bill on its own, which could lead to a partisan filibuster.
