"This week Wiser Investments becomes part of RBC Global Asset Management. It’s been an incredible journey over the past two years, from building a proof of concept to raising capital to hunting for customers and now, being acquired by the largest financial institution in Canada.

Kuhan Paramsothy and I thank the Wiser team for their dedication and effort to get us to this stage. We are excited about our next challenge of helping to lead the newly created RBC Global Asset Management (GAM) Innovation Lab.

It is an exciting time to be in this space and with GAM, we can maintain our start-up culture with access to client challenges and funding to build and explore different opportunities. A new journey begins for the Wiser family."
