Stuart Newey, Head of Banking at Coutts:
“For three centuries, Coutts has gone beyond the ordinary role of a bank by introducing our influential and successful clients to each other so that together they can achieve great things. Being a part of this ‘Coutts Community’ is what draws many new clients to bank with us and we believe that we have a client base that is the envy of the world. Traditionally, this has been done through networking events and face-to-face meetings, but to meet the demands of an increasingly fast-paced and technology-driven world we have now launched our own networking site. By keeping this to clients only, we recognise the appeal that this brings to its users and we hope that this new tool will be a catalyst for many new business deals.”
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.
