RBS looks to revive Williams & Glyn's banking brand

LONDON - RBS is looking to re-launch its dormant high-street banking brand Williams & Glyn's, as a response to European Commission plans to make the UK banking market more competitive.


According to reports, state-owned RBS is considering transferring some of its branches and customer base to Williams & Glyn's, which disappeared from British high streets in 1985.

At its peak, Williams & Glyn's had over 300 branches concentrated in the north-west of England. The branches were closed as RBS looked to expand its presence into England and Wales.

Lloyds Banking Group recently announced it is reviewing its decision to close its 340 Cheltenham & Gloucester branches.
