Nine London charities are celebrating their success in the second round of the NatWest Skills & Opportunities Fund. They will share over £250,000 in grants awarded by the bank’s London Regional Board following a public vote.
Many of the organisations that were awarded financial support in the first round of funding will use the money to support employability in their region.
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.
