Both hires have worked in similar roles at other firms. Mr. Dewey has nearly two decades of investment banking experience and most recently worked at Keefe, Bruyette & Woods Inc., an investment bank that specializes in the financial services sector. Mr. Lyons has worked in his field for more than 10 years, most recently at Bank of America Merrill Lynch.

"The addition of Chauncey and Ben to the firm reflects RBC's ongoing commitment to meeting our clients' needs and providing breadth and depth of product and sector coverage," said Blair Fleming, head of RBC's U.S. capital markets and investment banking businesses, in a statement.

The bank has built out its expertise in other areas, such as hiring a managing director of technology banking south of the border and expanding its research team to cover more asset classes and regions around the world.
