rbs

Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) deletes in the Netherlands less than 600 of about 650 jobs. The Dutch branch top executive Jan de Ruiter confirmed this Tuesday.

There are currently about 650 people at the Dutch branch of the British bank. A spokesman for RBS was not immediately available for a comment.

According to CNV RBS activities in the Netherlands will be placed on a minimum level. Thereby in 2018 only ten to fifteen jobs at the Dutch branch would remain.

RBS was one of the dividers of ABN Amro, together with the then Belgian-Dutch bank Fortis and Spain’s Banco Santander.

Zuidas

The British bank got the international affairs activities of ABN Amro and settled a large office at the Zuidas. A lot of Dutch people reported themselves as banking customer.

Apart from Fortis, RBS also choked heavily in this acquisition that took place just in front of the erupt of the credit crisis. The British Government then had to prevent the bank to collapse. Since then, the bank is owned by the British State.

About Frank Scheers

Mijn geboortestad Amsterdam is een prachtig uitgangspunt voor journalistiek. Amsterdam staat voor vrijheid van meningsuiting en tolerantie. Als journalist wil ik mij vrij en zonder beperkingen kunnen uiten over hetgeen zich in Amsterdam afspeelt, maar ook in de rest van de wereld. Ik schrijf zoveel mogelijk mijn eigen content, maar scan ook de rest van de wereld af naar opvallend nieuws. Dit nieuws hoeft niet altijd breaking news te zijn. Dit kan heel interessant nieuws zijn dat even belangrijk is als breaking news, maar iets minder bekend is, maar net zo belangrijk kan zijn voor de opinievorming. Naast nieuws uit Amsterdam en wereldnieuws richt ik mij ook op fraaie artikelen over politiek, mode, luxe artikelen, gezondheid, het milieu, entertainment, life style, business, onderwijs, shopping, gastronomie, reizen et cetera. Amsterdam Today is een actief online news magazine en wij brengen artikelen in het Nederlands en in het Engels. Belangrijk om te noemen is dat Amsterdam Today zich bezig houdt met Immersive Journalism. Dat wil zeggen dat wij fascinerend nieuws brengen in combinatie met virtual reality technieken. Je ervaart dan het nieuws alsof je er zelf bij bent. My hometown Amsterdam is a wonderful starting point for journalism. Amsterdam stands for freedom of speech and tolerance. As a journalist, I can express freely and without restrictions on what is happening in Amsterdam, but also in the rest of the world. I write my own content as much as possible, but also scan the rest of the globe for striking news. This news doesn't always have to be breaking news. This can be very interesting news that is as important as breaking news, but slightly less known and just as important to the way people form their opinions. In addition to news from Amsterdam and the world news I also write about articles on politics, fashion, luxury, health, environment, entertainment, life style, business, education, shopping, wining and dining, travel and so on. Amsterdam Today is an active online news magazine and we bring articles in Dutch and in English. Important to mention is that Amsterdam Today deals with Immersive Journalism.
