In November 2013, RBS established RBS Capital Resolution (RCR), an internal bad bank, in order to separate and wind down RBS’s poorly-performing and high-risk assets. RBS transferred £38 billion of ‘high-risk’ legacy assets to RCR. RCR is managed separately from the main bank, and the aim is to wind down these assets in full within three years. As a result, there is not any intention to transfer additional assets in or out of RCR.
Further details on the operations, objectives and composition of loans in RCR can be found in the Government’s Bad Bank Review available at:
RBS also produces detailed reporting updates on the progress of RCR alongside its financial results, which are available on the RBS website.
