“Northern Ireland is a very competitive place to do business and we are delighted that our colleagues in Belfast will be delivering the high levels of customer service to our customers in RBS and Nat West as well as Ulster Bank,” the CEO of Personal and Business Banking at RBS Les Matheson said.

“Northern Ireland is a very dynamic marketplace and RBS looks forward to working more closely with Ulster Bank on initiatives like this in the future.”
