RBS PPI provision up by £500m
Yesterday we brought you news that we were expecting major UK banks to be setting aside upwards of £5bn over the next few weeks to cover PPI claims.
Today we hear that the Natwest and RBS PPI provision will receive an additional £500m.
This takes the total Natwest / RBS PPI provision to £4.6 billion, and we can can say with some degree of confidence that this is far from the last addition we will see the sister banks having to set aside.
Why the increase?
This pending media attention is sure to see a new wave of PPI claims as the estimated 7 million who haven’t yet made their claim decide to check whether they’ve had PPI.
This additional £500m takes the overall bill to all UK lenders to £32 billion, with the major banks accounting for £27.5 billion of this.
Over the coming days and weeks we fully expect the total PPI bill to break the £35 billion mark and edge closer towards our estimated final bill of £42.5 billion.
