Getting Ready for Brexit – Banking Business Transfer Scheme

We plan to use our banking entity in the Netherlands, NatWest Markets N.V., to serve our non-UK European Economic Area (EEA) customers when the UK leaves the European Union (EU).

We’re using a legal scheme called a “Banking Business Transfer Scheme” under Part VII of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (the Scheme) to replicate master documentation for EEA customers and transfer certain existing transactions from NatWest Markets Plc to NatWest Markets N.V., an authorised credit institution. We need the approval of the Court of Session in Scotland (the Court) before the Scheme is effective.
