About Royal Bank of Scotland
The Royal Bank of Scotland plc (RBS) is a part of The Royal Bank of Scotland Group. RBS has around 700 branches in the UK and is considered a High Street retail bank.
The company was founded in 1727 in order to protect investors’ compensation from a failed “Company of Scotland”. In 1728, The Royal Bank of Scotland invented the overdraft.
The first London RBS opened in 1874 as office headquarters in Scotland saw the rising of London as the world’s financial capital – this provoked a hostile reaction from the English banks at the time, who lobbied government (reference) and it was set into law that Scottish banks wouldn’t open branches in England and visa versa. This was effective up until as recently as the 1960’s.
