RBS and Natwest To Inject £150m Into Leisure Market (IBTimes)
The Royal Bank of Scotland Group plc (LON:RBS) and its retail arm Natwest launched a £150m to support the growth of the leisure industry, in a move seen to shirk off mounting complaints and scandals in the retail industry. Royal Bank of Scotland Group plc (LON:RBS) and Natwest revealed in a joint statement that the fund includes fee-free loans to support investment for the leisure industry, as one in four UK leisure businesses feel they are losing out to competitors due to lack of investment. “Competition in this sector is fierce, so those putting off short term investment can quickly find they need to make larger investments, or face being left behind,” said Andrew Taylor, Head of Leisure for Commercial Banking at NatWest and Royal Bank of Scotland Group plc (LON:RBS).

Scottish bank customers warned over deposit protection scheme (Guardian)
Bank customers and pensioners in Scotland would be less well protected if the country voted to leave the UK, a report warned on Monday. An independent Scottish retail banking sector would be dominated by two large banks – Bank of Scotland and Royal Bank of Scotland Group plc (LON:RBS). If one of these were to fail, the report suggests, almost all of the costs for compensating depositors would fall on the remaining firm, and that could lead to more concern among deposit-holders.

Banks: emerging from the bottom drawer (Scotsman)
It’s bottom-drawer rummage time again. Remember those bank shares that made you wince every time you checked them?

That’s 71 per cent up on the low of 196.6p last summer if still short of the 367.8p peak reached earlier this year.
