RBS offers major role for Amsterdam

Royal Bank of Scotland will make Amsterdam its European financial centre for international cash-management and clearing, if the consortium it leads succeeds in taking over ABN Amro, the Scottish bank said on Tuesday.

Rival bidder Barclays has pledged to keep Amsterdam as ABN Amro’s headquarters and put money into establishing a top financial institute in the city if it wins the takeover battle.
