RBS remains committed to build the best bank for customers in the UK and Republic of Ireland.
We use independent surveys to measure our customers’ experience and track our progress against our goal in each of our markets.
Net Promoter Score (NPS)
Our brands are our main connection with customers. Each takes a clear and differentiated position with the aim of helping us strengthen our relationship with them. For this reason we also track customer advocacy, as measured by NPS, for our key brands. The table below shows NPS and Trust scores for our key brands:
We are aware that customer advocacy is not where it should be consistently enough and that we have more work to do inorder to achieve our ambition. Our digital strategy is delivering high NPS in these areas; specifically our mobile application, paperless mortgage process and new Bankline are all scoring highly for customer advocacy. Our Commercial Banking NPS has fallen recently; however it remains ahead of the rest of the market and we remain committed to supporting our Commercial and Business customers.
