As a key player in global markets during 2009, The Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) has been privileged to engage in strategic dialogue with our corporate and financial institution clients.
RBS has helped corporate and financial institution clients to re-engineer their balance sheets, improve their liquidity positions, structure and fund acquisitions, and prepare themselves to achieve future business strategies. With others, we have considered their strategic options ahead of a potential economic recovery. RBS has been able to provide bespoke analysis and advice linked to actionable strategies by understanding our clients and their competitors, and by being, and staying, close to the equity, debt and derivatives markets.
Andrew Walker, Co-Head of Corporate Finance at RBS, commented: “We are delighted to receive this award for the third year running and grateful for the confidence our clients have again shown in RBS’ ability to innovate and provide complete corporate finance solutions in another year of challenging conditions. It is a testament to RBS’ client focus and confirms the success of our strategy to be a partner of choice for our leading clients. We look forward to working with our clients in 2010, and to the continuing challenge of providing the outstanding advice and service they require.”
