Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc is preparing to cut more than £1 billion ($1.25 billion) of annual operating costs by eliminating jobs and closing branches as it seeks to bolster profitability, said a person with knowledge of the plans, Bloomberg reported. While the Edinburgh-based lender probably won’t reveal a headline figure for role reductions, senior executives believe RBS has more staff than it requires and will cut more jobs, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the details are private. RBS has said it will unveil fresh plans to meet profit targets alongside annual results on Feb. 24.
