Executive management team

The Executive management team supports the Chief Executive in managing RBS’s businesses. The team sits across RBS’ Executive Committees which review and debate relevant items before consideration by the senior legal entity Boards. The Executive Committees are responsible for developing and delivering strategy and priorities approved by the Boards, monitoring performance against key financial objectives, managing and overseeing asset and liability management, capital allocations, risk, disclosure issues, investments, acquisitions and disposals, operational issues, customer issues and succession planning. The Executive Committees actively promote RBS’ culture and values.
