Good read. Quite a lengthy article. ‘It is a well-hidden secret that we’re the biggest business bank in the UK’ says RBS chief The Royal Bank of Scotland boss tells James Quinn why he’s dumped the scallop kitchen and why trust is important “Economically, the UK needs small businesses. Everything starts and finishes with small business, and getting entrepreneurs up and running is vital for the UK economy. There’s a second, and I won’t say selfish, but an alternative motive, for us. That’s around creating the entrepreneurial spirit within RBS, and changing the way we operate with entrepreneurs, in terms of what works, how they operate and how they think.” As McEwan, 58, works to transform the sprawling bank (it still employs 90,000 people across 14 countries, albeit down from 161,000 across 37 countries at its peak) he is hoping some of the energy generated by these entrepreneurs will rub off on his staff. The bank’s biggest shareholder, the Government, still owns 73.2pc of RBS, which McEwan would rather was not the case. UK Financial Investments, which controls the stake, sold £2.1bn of shares in August, which he thinks is a step in the right direction. But will we see more of it? “Markets like this do stop any investor from making trades if they want to get the best price, but it’s in the Government’s hands to make its determination as to what price it gets out at.” Although McEwan insists he does not discuss the situation with the Chancellor, he clearly feels frustrated. “One of the inhibitors of the stock is its lack of liquidity… and there are a lot of shareholders who won’t come in while the Government is sitting there. The other thing that over time will become quite important is our ability to pay a dividend. Again, that opens up a new set of investors who can come in,” he says, reiterating his hope that this will be possible in 2017.

Off topic. OLED TV's. As good as they claim? Moaners on forums about vigineting and stuff. Is that just enthusiasts wanting perfection that we mere mortals would never notice?

Yes, I underestimated the scale of the short closing squeeze, but its probably just that.

Figooner, I admire your principled premise of fair justice and the way you offer your point of view...however as Leeds is qualified to inform you that in general there are many innocents incarcerated on that very premise... In the financial world hah...fair justice indeed!...;

About trade reporting: this is the biggest misunderstanding even by people who would consider themselves very experienced. Take the case 1000 shares on offer, I buy them. One trade will be reported for 1000 shares at the transacted price. Obviously I bought the shares so I would expect them to show as a buy but someone sold them and they would expect to see the trade as a sell. Here goes the conundrum. A trade is an exchange at an agreed price. It isn't a buy nor a sell, it is a buy and a sell. Somewhat dealing with 3rd party (mm) or obviously trade overlapping each other only partially muddy the waters as ultimately the trades end up being an exchange. Individual trades can't be labelled directly and the indication of buy or sell is at best a misnomer. I do believe the date and exact time of the trade(s) (should include the entire period an order is actively being filled) should be made public. This would help check delayed notifications. This petition is pointless as it doesn't offer a working alternative to the current labelling. Rant over. ^_^Have a nice weekend. The world will not end. This time isn't different.
