RBS creates new CEO role in Luxembourg

LuxembourgThe Royal Bank of Scotland has promoted Revel Wood to the newly created position of chief executive officer of RBS Luxembourg, its Luxembourg-domiciled management company and fund governance business.

Wood’s tasks will be to prepare the business for the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) and to further develop strategic partnerships with clients and service providers.
