Ways to invest in RBS

Copy link to section

The first thing to know about investing in RBS is that it now trades as NatWest Group. It’s the same company under a different name, so investing means signing up with an online broker, creating an account, and buying NatWest shares.

There are some other ways to invest too, however. If you’re a beginner or don’t have the time to research companies and manage your investments every day, there are mutual funds and exchange-traded funds where someone else makes the decisions for you. Learn more about the different ways to invest with the links below.

What is Royal Bank of Scotland?

Copy link to section

The Royal Bank of Scotland is a British high street bank and financial institution. It’s perhaps best known as one of the banks bailed out by the UK government in 2009. That incident is part of the reason RBS changed its name to NatWest Group in 2020, in an effort to start afresh.

The government still owns a stake in NatWest Group as a result of the bailout. It means the company is a little more restricted on how it can act compared to its rivals and perhaps needs a closer look before you invest.
