History of RBS

Founded in Edinburgh in 1727, the Royal bank of Scotland is an amalgamation of hundreds of past banks. As the second bank to be established in Scotland, it initially traded only within its home country up until 1783, opening its first branch in Glasgow in the same year. Banks are well known as acquirers, as they constantly look to strengthen their financial positioning and swallow those that could compete with. In 1864, RBS made its first acquisition, buying the Dundee Banking Co.
