NatWest Group Response to COVID-19

NatWest Group Commercial Banking Corporate Affairs Team

In February 2020 NatWest Group launched its new purpose with its new CEO Alison Rose at the helm. Weeks later, the global coronavirus pandemic struck, forcing many UK businesses from entrepreneurs to large corporates - to close their doors and wait for support and advice from thier banks and the government.

As one of the UK's leading banks and the largest supporter of UK business, this was an immediate test for our objective, which was to show our new purpose in action, and demonstrate that NatWest Group would do the right thing for our customers.
