RBS kicking it with cool kids in Hackney

February 27, 2014


LONDON Fields is better known for hipster peacocking than finance but it seems RBS chief exec Ross McEwan has taken a shine to the place - well, more specifically trendy tech workspace The Trampery.

The banking boss is holding a press conference there today, having already appeared there in October, pulling finance hacks out of their comfort zones in the City to the heart of Hackney. It seems a curious choice - made even more mysterious by the invite, which only revealed the location once you were accredited.

But the bank says it's simple, The Trampery is a client and RBS is keen to be seen in a customer environment. We'd still like to see McEwan in a pair of black framed specs and skinny jeans.
