Royal Bank of Scotland is said to be preparing to name Les Matheson as the new boss of its high-street banking. The Financial Times reported that Matheson would take on the position, which involves overseeing the retail banking of RBS and NatWest. The role is being filled at a time when the bank's IT systems are facing scrutiny after problems for customers accessing their accounts and as a survey found that the value of the group's brands, RBS, NatWest, Citizens Bank , Charter One and Ulster Bank , has lost $1.2bn (pounds 729m). The survey by Brand Finance found that RBS was alone among UK banks in suffering a fall in its brand value with HSBC , Barclays , Standard Chartered and Lloyds all scoring higher. Jill Treanor
