RBS PPI fund up £650m to almost £4bn
It’s that time of year again when the major banks release their quarterly figures to the city, which all too often sees them having to increase their PPI compensation pots.
Our October prediction
In the last set of figures released approximately 3 months ago, RBS added £150m which took their total PPI bill to a gigantic £3.3 BILLION!
At that time we made what some considered to be a bold prediction, stating that over the course of the following twelve months we believed that the RBS PPI fund would surpass £4 BILLION.
Well, even we have to admit that we didn’t think the target would be within touching distance just a few months later.
Huge addition to the pot
In their latest figures released today, RBS have set aside a mammoth £2.2 BILLION for various regulatory failings and fines, ranging from the recent foreign exchange rigging scandal to the IT failures, not forgetting the interest rate hedgings.
Of the £2.2 BILLION set aside by RBS/Natwest, £650 MILLION is to be set aside to cover compensation claims for mis-sold PPI.
This sees the overall cost so far to the troubled high street bank stand at £3.97 BILLION.
With further quarterly announcements due later in the year it now appears our bold statement will actually turn out to be a bit of an underestimation, much to the surprise of city experts.
Where will the final bill stop? Well, with an estimated 7 million yet to claim, we believe the end is far from near.
