This client is a British banking and insurance company based in Edinburgh, Scotland. The group operates personal, business, corporate, institutional and private banking services and insurance through its offices located in Europe, North America and Asia. Before the 2008 financial crisis, the group was briefly the largest bank in the the world. Subsequently due to a major loss of confidence and fall in share price, it received support from the UK government, which in August 2015, held a large stake in the group. The subsequent business transformation included the need to radical reduce the size and cost of the Corporate and Institutional (CIB) Investment Bank.
