Wealth Businesses Graduate Programme
Work with extraordinary clients who demand a market-leading experience.
About the business
Wealth Businesses is made up of Coutts and Affluent which includes business areas such as NatWest Premier, Private Client Advice & Investment Services (PCAIS), Drummonds & Child & co. Our vision is to be the best Wealth Manager for the UK by providing a personalised service to our clients.
By bringing together our Wealth Businesses, we aim to increase the depth of our customers' and clients' relationships with us as their families' needs evolve and change throughout their lives. While continuing to grow banking and lending, we also want to ensure we are meeting their investment needs as well. We will do that by focusing on our customers' and clients' needs throughout their lifecycle: to save, borrow and invest their wealth, and to live financially better lives from their early years through to post retirement and at every stage of their wealth journey.
