RBS employees have told the Times the transfer will take place because the bank can’t make a profit out of these SMEs. The bankers say it will “lead to some of them being treated more harshly than other customers”. The businesses likely to move into a ‘noncore’ category are the ones on the most competitive loan deals, according to the Times. The move has garnered mixed reactions on Twitter. @RichardOsborne asks: "Isn’t focusing on core clients what every business does?" He continues: “The banks must become viable again otherwise they will collapse.” In response, @10Yetis tweets: “Agree, business does do that, but the government should not (they own majority stake). “[Banks] can become viable on their own dime, not mine.” What’s your take on RBS’s plans?
