Lunchtime links: Shock - RBS to make more redundancies

eFC logo

Not particularly surprisingly, it emerged this morning that RBS might be required to make some more job cuts. The new(ish) chairman, Sir Philip Hampton, said the bank needs to reduce costs by 2.5bn in the next three years and that this will clearly mean that, "some of our people will lose their jobs." Unfortunately, he couldn't say which people or where, but we predict a touch more trimming in the markets division associated with ABN AMRO, in the absence of which RBS says it would have posted an operating profit last year.
