Enterprise Mentorship Program
Market analysis of Commercial Banking in Canada, with a focus on industries where we might have a gap in our portfolio and analysis of post-Covid19 risk management within Commercial Banking based on industry impact of Covid-19. The purpose of the project is to participants a clear understanding about the frameworks, policies and processes that Canadian banks use to support business clients across a variety of industries.
The importance of this project lies in the critical role that Commercial Banking franchises at large banks play in the country’s economic landscape and how they help support not just the financial industry but also the wider Canadian economy. This project will be used to better inform RBC’s Commercial Lending competitor landscape and update our risk appetite to capture market share where we might be underpenetrated.
The project targets Commercial Banking Strategy decision-makers that will be looking to identify gaps and areas of opportunity for growth and penetration with new clients as well as retention of existing clients, participants will need to be creative and thoughtful in considering how best to research for this project, using a combination of the banking sector’s publicly available information
along with more targeted information available through 3rd party media and analysis sources.
