NEO Exchange Inc.
("NEO Exchange" or "NEO") is pleased to announce
that RBC Global Asset Management Inc. ("RBC GAM Inc.") has launched
seven new Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) on NEO that began trading today.
With the launch of these new index-tracking ETFs, RBC GAM Inc. becomes
the sixth and newest fund provider to list with NEO in 2017.

"We are excited to expand our family of RBC ETFs to include a suite of
index-tracking solutions listed on the NEO exchange," said Mark Neill,
Head of RBC ETFs.

While this is the first time RBC GAM Inc. has listed ETFs on NEO, many
existing RBC ETFs already trade comfortably on the exchange. In the
month of August 2017, NEO accounted for 52% of all volume in RBC GAM
ETFs listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

"We are thrilled that our success in the ETF listing space has given RBC
Global Asset Management confidence to list these new ETFs on NEO," said
Jos Schmitt, President and Chief Executive Officer, NEO Exchange.
"Through our ongoing efforts to educate the investor community about the
benefits of competing listing venues and the implementation of
NEO-listed data across all relevant market data distribution channels,
we are working to build a healthier, more competitive market in Canada.
We look forward to building a long-lasting partnership with RBC Global
Asset Management."

RBC GAM Inc. joins BlackRock Asset Management, BMO Global Asset
Management, Invesco Canada, Mackenzie Investments and Redwood Asset
Management as ETF providers with listings on NEO. Today's launch of RBC
ETFs brings the total number of ETF listings on NEO to 25, comprised of
42 symbols.
