The return of Williams & Glyn moves closer

RBS Group have reached an agreement to work with a group of investors to create a new challenger bank, to launch in 2015. It will be called Williams & Glyn.

Our new investors are a consortium led by Corsair Capital and Centerbridge Partners. We expect Williams & Glyn to be floated on the London stock exchange in the next two or three years. You can find out more about the investors at www.rbs.com/williamsandglyn
