Around 2.7 million of our customers are using the mobile app and around 2.7 million are using only the Mobile Banking app, Online Banking or both for their day-to-day banking needs.

Head of Savings for NatWest and RBS, David Crawford, said: “Our customers are changing the way they bank with us. They want to be able to service their everyday banking needs - including saving for a rainy day - where and when it is convenient for them.

We know how important savings are to our customers and their families. They help pay for holidays, retirement, new cars, houses, education, as well as life’s unexpected moments. Whatever they are saving for, we want to make it easy and to help them keep on top of achieving their goals”.
