We are here to support the growth of viable businesses in our areas of operation
“RBS seeks to help in building vibrant business communities that will drive the UK economy forward. We want to inspire our customers as well as help tomorrow's entrepreneurs to achieve their ambitions. That’s why we are focussed on a programme to inspire and support today’s youth as well as women in business and social entrepreneurs. This report sets out some of 2012's key achievements and lays the foundations for us to do even more in 2013.
RBS is a leading business bank, supporting businesses of all shapes and sizes to flourish and grow. Maintaining our lead position in our core market has meant taking huge steps to strengthen the service we offer to our business customers.
Feedback from them showed they wanted a closer working relationship with the people they deal with from RBS. This
section sets out the wide range of measures we're putting in place to address that demand. Of course, our commitment to supporting economic growth isn't limited to companies who've already established themselves. We're also doing more to help people start up in business and grow their contribution to the economy.
Creating liquidity and ultimately supporting economic growth is a fundamental responsibility for any bank. In fact, our success depends on it. As described here, over the last year we have continued to do all we can to lend to business, big and small.
