If we assess your circumstances and consider you not to be an “Eligible Complainant” under the Financial Ombudsman Services jurisdiction – your complaint will still be handled in line with our internal policies and in line with the FCA’s ‘Treating Customers Fairly’ requirements.

We are covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). The FSCS can pay compensation to depositors if a bank is unable to meet its financial obligations. Most depositors - including most individuals and non-financial businesses - are covered by the scheme.
In respect of deposits, an eligible depositor is entitled to claim up to £85,000. For joint accounts each account holder is treated as having a claim in respect of their share so, for a joint account held by two eligible depositors, the maximum amount that could be claimed would be £85,000 each (making a total of £170,000). The £85,000 limit relates to the combined amount in all the eligible depositor's accounts with the bank, including their share of any joint account, and not to each separate account.
In relation to investments, an eligible claimant is entitled to claim up to £50,000.
For further information about the scheme (including the amounts covered and eligibility to claim) please call your RBC Investor & Treasury Services client service representative or refer to the FSCS consumer booklet or call them on 0800 678 1100 or 020 7741 4100. Contact details are as follows:
