More about NatWest investment mis-selling
NatWest’s investment mis-selling has been in a series of headlines in recent years. In May 2015, the bank was forced to offer compensation to some 24,000 customers after it was engulfed in a £70 million investment mis-selling scandal involving complex ‘structured deposit’ investments.
Many people were led to believe the bond was low risk. In fact the product was so freakishly complicated, it would have been virtually impossible for a layperson to understand the risk involved in a single meeting. Some customers even reported home visits by NatWest advisers who tried to convince them to part with their savings.
RBS, which NatWest is part of, has since acknowledged this as an example of investment mis-selling and apologised for not explaining the product properly. They are taking the product off the shelves and have agreed to pay compensation to any who were affected.
NatWest’s investment mis-selling problems have been further fuelled by their poor handling of complaints. In 2011, NatWest was fined £2.8 million by the Financial Services Authority (FSA) for their unsatisfactory complaints procedure. The former banking industry regulator said there was an unacceptably high chance that customer complaints weren’t being handled correctly. In December 2014, Paul Farrelly called for the Government to make the handling of complaints independent from banks, a move inspired by the way in which the NatWest compensation claims were affecting his constituents.
