About Coutts & Co
Coutts is a private bank and wealth manager founded in 1692. It is the seventh oldest bank in the world. Throughout the 20th century, Coutts opened more branches and significantly extended its regional footprint. In 1963, Coutts became the first British bank to use a fully computerised accounting system. In 1987, Coutts gained international representation by establishing its operations in Geneva. In October 1990, to strengthen their representation internationally, Coutts and NatWest merged their existing subsidiaries (which included Handelsbank) to create the Coutts Group. The acquisition of the NatWest Group in 2000 established Coutts as the private banking arm of The Royal Bank of Scotland.
