Since 2000, it has been part of the Royal Bank of Scotland Group. After "ringfencing" of the Group's core domestic business, the bank became a subsidiary of NatWest Holdings.

NatWest is one of the Big Four clearing banks in the UK,[1] It has a large network of over 960 branches.[2]

In 2017, NatWest was awarded Best Banking App in the British Bank Awards.[3]
