Throughout 2014, NatWest has been working in partnership with the National Black Women’s Network (NBWN) to collectively develop a deeper understanding of the barriers preventing women and Black and Ethnic Minority (BME) entrepreneurs from starting and succeeding in business.
The commitment will see all RBS employees receive a minimum hourly wage of £7.85.
RBS has today committed to helping 2.5 million people in the UK each year to improve their financial capability.
RBS has executed a £1.1bn securitisation deal with Macquarie Infrastructure Debt Investment Solutions (MIDIS), which will allow the bank to recycle capital and increase lending to the sustainable or renewable energy sectors.
RBS has today announced a new £1 billion in funding through NatWest to support female entrepreneurs in the UK to scale and grow – the largest intervention by a UK lender focused specifically on female-led businesses.
