Very good I am sure but what happened to those individuals within the company who have been on the "Talent Grid" for the last 5 years or so. Looks like the talent grid has been shown the door - RBS at its best, spot the talent , fill in a few forms, then forget about it until its too late.

Presumably it is because no one within Coutts or adam & Co has enough talent to do the job.
