Led by Andy Swift, NatWest's Director of Commercial Banking for Southampton, the locally based team of over thirty staff, includes nine relationship managers who between them have worked for the bank for over 222 years and have been providing a relationship management service to business clients for over 104 years.
The team also includes a Business Development Director, plus specialists in Corporate Finance, International Trade, Asset Finance, Invoice Discounting, Private Banking and Real Estate Finance.
Commenting on the creation of his new team, Andy said: "I'm delighted to be leading a team who will ensure that our commercial clients in the area can deal directly with a relationship manager who is locally based, really understands their individual market place, and is committed to becoming an active partner in their business. Despite the economic climate there are lots of exciting opportunities out there, particularly in the international trade, acquisitions and buy-out arenas that our customers want to be taking advantage of. As a result, it's great to be able to provide them with a dedicated relationship manager, as well as locally based experts in these fields, to give them all the support that they need."
