The banking group launched a review of its account in June, and invited the incumbent MediaCom, ZenithOptimedia, Manning Gottlieb OMD and Vizeum to pitch for the account.

The review focuses on the high-street NatWest business that RBS acquired in 2000.

WPP's MediaCom was awarded the consolidated RBS media account in 2000 after a six-month pitch process, and, in 2006, extended its relationship by adding responsibilities for online planning and buying.
