International News: Royal Bank of Scotland announced that Stephen Hester would step down later this year as Chief Executive, a job he took over from Fred Goodwin when the bank was bailed out in November 2008. The British Treasury is currently mulling its options about how to dispose of the stake it still holds in RBS.
Ousted boss Stephen Hester today warned it could take up to a decade for the British taxpayers to be repaid its £45bn (€52bn) stake in bailed-out Royal Bank of Scotland.
Stephen Hester lays out RBS departure plan - In this major interview following his shock resignation from RBS, Stephen Hester tells the Sunday Telegraph that politics came with the job, what he really thinks of the Treasury and why this isn't the time for anger.    
global group stock fraud watch Any doubt over who calls the shots at Britain's part-nationalised banks has been dispelled by the fate of Stephen Hester. The RBS Chief Executive has been forced out at the behest of George Osborne. Forget the arms-length paraphernalia of the UKFI holding company. When ministers want the bailed-out banks to do something, they do it. That's as it should be, since the state (not the "taxpayer" as the media constantly intones) currently owns 81% and 39% of RBS and Lloyds TSB respectively. The problem is what they want to do with them – which is sell them off fast, regardless of the loss to the public purse or the damage to the economy. The chancellor is driven by a mixture of unbending ideology and raw electoral calculation. He and David Cameron are determined to start the largest privatisations in Britain's history by the end of 2014 – just in time for a 2015 election. The idea is to engineer a "Tell Sid" 1980s-style Thatcherite handout to the right kind of voters, while e ...

I can't believe how the UK government has treated Stephen Hester. A man who knowingly accepted a hospital pass of a job (leaving a much higher paid position I might add) to take up the challenge of trying to turn around RBS was thwarted at every turn by a bunch of meddling politicians and journalists. And despite his efforts and several personal refusals to accept his own controversial bonus payments, he basically gets discarded like garbage. Thank you George And Dave for doing your best to make our national investment in RBS worthless.

This morning I watched a report regarding the Chief Executive of The Royal Bank of Scotland, Stephen Hester, who has apparently been 'forced' to stand down at the end of this year and will therefore receive a payoff of at least £1.6m...and possibly up to £5.6m.I do hope he can manage on such a low income! An earlier report involved a study of cats armed with GPS tracking devices and micro-cameras attached to their collars, being monitored by a team from BBC Two's Horizon programme in collaboration with the Royal Veterinary College...with a view to finding out what they get up to at night!. All I could see was a vast amount of money being spent to tell us the obvious!! The report concluded that... '...cats appeared to time share territory to avoid confrontation with neighbouring felines and visit each others houses. However, the cat cam footage also revealed squabbles over territory remained. There was also an incident with a fox and with a nest of fledglings'.!!.My life feels ever so much enhanced by t ...

Yet again I note that the government is taking the *** as are the bankers. £1,200,000 as a leaving fee for Stephen Hester on top of his already substantial salary is a disgrace. More so when you look at the way other public sector employees are abused in the press for their 'generous' salaries that are often barely above minimum wage.

Stephen Hester is set to retire early from being boss of R.B.S he is going to get an approximate £5,000,000 pay off. Does anybody think he should get this when the cost to the tax payer has NOT been met.
I'm not a big Stephen Hester fan, but I think the government may have a hard time finding someone who's willing to take such a politicized position, let alone do a better job.
Either Hester is displaying the same hopeless grasp of numbers that got the bank this mess in the first place or sky needs to sack it's reporter! They can't have paid back hundreds of billions of taxpayer support as they weren't given that much and they don't have 30 million customers! They might have 30 million products held but again shows either a lack of understanding of the numbers or a willingness to mislead.
Britain's state-rescued Royal Bank of Scotland said Wednesday that Chief Executive Stephen Hester has decided to step down after five years at the helm, during which he has overseen a vast restructuring in readiness for the group's eventual privatisation.
Questions are being raised about the future privatization of the part-nationalized Royal Bank of Scotland after its Chief Executive, Stephen Hester, says he is leaving the bank.
How can this be right...? In 2009 the Royal Bank of Scotland was driven into bankruptcy. It was never called that; the spin doctors stoically referred to its condition as ruined! It was brought down by its then Chief Executive Officer, Fred Goodwin. The financial losses he caused were the greatest ever in British history. The human cost was colossal and his wholesale sackings earned him the title: “Fred the Shred”. For his negligence, Goodwin was finally awarded a pension of £350,000 a year. His pension had initially been set at £770,000 a year. Only after a public outcry was it reduced for him because he himself point-blank refused to reduce it voluntarily. Today, 13 June 2013, Stephen Hester resigns from the helm of the now 84% Government-owned Royal Bank of Scotland. He sails off into the sunset with a package of £5.6 MILLION for his “success” in turning the bank around. The success was hardly his alone, if at all. £45 BILLION pounds of UK taxpayers money was a bail out no other ...

He has gone on public record saying "I have been in the trenches with the people and its been a difficult and bruising job".

"Hester la Vista baby", my newspaper headline prediction for 2maro Just heard on news Stephen Hester has quit RBS Usual agreement I reckon, big payoff, celebrity get me out of here, pantos
Stephen Hester leaving RBS. Do I care? Seriously. No I do not!
Seems like Stephen Hester has been treated appallingly by the government. He is clearly an incredibly talented man, has done a good job, turned down bonuses on principle and got rid of £800bn off their balance sheet and yet he has been booted aside. Poor chap. Take your £4m bonus and run mate, you deserve every last penny :)
Cannot believe Stephen Hester has been pushed out of his job as CEO of RBS - for those who kick off about his £4m pay off, he didn't join the company until the government had to put £45bn in to bail it out and he's earned them £38bn back within 5 years even with the PPI payouts included. Legend - make him chancellor!!
Holy crap Stephen Hester has stepped down from RBS!

Another credit crunch on the way Stephen Hester as gone from RBS something is afoot he only got appointed last year.
Stephen Hester on his 5 years at RBS "its certainly been a hugely challenge" Yep. I get that. No doubt walking away with a £1.6million pay off and £4million of shares, could easily be considered a reward. Although, its not entirely clear what that reward is for.
unlimited calling, voip, phone service
So Stephen Hester is stepping down as CEO of RBS later this year. It will be a sad loss for RBS. This guy picked up the pieces after Fred the Shred an his fiasco which nearly bankrupted the country. Mr Hester will be a sad loss and will prove to be asset to wherever he goes next

I see my favourite crook, sorry banker, Stephen Hester, after a terribly bruising time leading RBS has decided to call it day, bless him. He hasn't been made redundant or retired he's just quit. And he stands to walk away with a years salary for his pains. A measly £1.6 m + other stuff I didn't understand totalling an eye watering £4.6 m. Nice to think that should I leave my place of employment tomorrow (don't get excited I'm staying) I will receive a years salary. What do mean I won't? Austerity my ***
Stephen Hester, the Chief Executive of Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), is to quit the taxpayer-backed lender this year in a move which diminishes the prospects of privatising the bank ahead of the next general election.
After 6.5 years in RBS, I handed my notice in today - I doubt my payout will be quite as good as Stephen Hester's though...
Stephen Hester quits RB'yeS'. Getting out before his reputation is ruined by a sinking ship
In my eyes Stephen Hester deserves his £1.6m plus investments, there ive said it.
So that scumbag sfor brains Stephen Hester says Mr Hester said: "Of course I'd like to have stayed as I feel I've been in the trenches with all of my people helping RBS to recover and privatisation would have been a fitting end to those endeavours" OK scum - just which trench are you in with these guys then? Some 37,500 roles have already been lost at RBS under the group Chief Executive, Stephen Hester, who was appointed after the £45bn taxpayer bailout in 2008, and Unite, Britain's biggest union, said 700 of the latest cutbacks had been outlined to affected staff. I am sure many would like you to be in a trench full of mustard gas and a load of shrapnel. Mr Hester, who led the large-scale restructuring of RBS following its near collapse in 2008, will receive £1.6m in cash - equivalent to a year's salary. He will keep his long-term investment plan, currently worth £3m. The Treasury has capped his maximum entitlement from this plan at £4.2m So which "trench" are you in? God you make me puke.
Hester would have liked to stay for privatisation: Stephen Hester said he would have liked to have stayed at the bank beyond this year to oversee its privatisation.

Why do we need to privatise RBS anyway? Wouldn't a state bank be a good thing? Providing banking services to everyone?

I am just siting here, looking at my little boy, and thinking about my husband... I have to be the single, most lucky woman in this world. I have this amazing two year old little boy that calls me Mommy and loves me unconditionally. Ethan is at the start of every good day and at the end of every bad day loving on me and wiping away any and all the stresses I have. To top it off, I have the must amazing husband in the world! Stephen King takes my hand and guides me through all of the darkness I have to face. He is this incredibly sweet, tough man that would do anything within his power for his family... He works seven days a week most weeks, and never complains once. He is a good, hard-working man who STILL thinks to bring his wife home roses, and I'm the luckiest woman on earth for getting to *** him up first.

What do you do when a customer tells you about a security breach on their account? Answer - Pass the customer to three different call agents before advising that they can't help because its after 5pm. Then suggest that they call back in the morning. Good job Stephen Hester... That's just how i'd promote confidence and customer satisfaction too!

RBS To Compensate Customers Hit By IT Glitch - RBS has blamed a "hardware fault" for a glitch that meant customers were unable to use their accounts online or withdraw cash for several hours. The technical problems, which started on Wednesday evening, came less than a year after RBS, Natwest and Ulster Bank customers were hit by a major computer issue. The meltdown left millions of people unable to access their money and cost the group £175m to put right. In a statement, the bank apologised for the recent disruption and said its systems were fixed and running as normal. Stephen Hester, the Chief Executive of the banks' parent company, RBS Group, which is 80% state-owned, was forced to apologise for the problems at the time and £100m was put aside to compensate customers.
King's comments also put huge pressure on Stephen Hester, CEO of RBS who had just been accused of achieving nothing
Sir Mervyn King says RBS should be split in two like Northern Rock .. .. what say you Stephen Hester??
RBS has announced losses of over £5.1bn and bonuses of £679m, most of which was directly funded by the taxpayer. Through the magical misdirection of Stephen Hester, we are expected to believe that this has been a “chastening year” for the bank.
Losses at Royal Bank of Scotland widen but Stephen Hester says the privatisation of the bailed-out bank is getting closer
Well done Stephen Hester of RBS, a £5.1billion loss, after over £600m paid in bonus's, trading in a market where you won't lend £5k without charging £10k in fees and taking security in property and a contract signed in triplicate in blood, overseen by an army of staff that smile nice but can't make a decision (or coffee). I wish I could afford to commission your services but alas the £8m+ bonus salary, property, corporate jet and other perks you demand is just out of reach for a private business that can't go £5 overdrawn without a chargeable letter from your bank

So can banks really change? Antony Jenkins at Barclays and Stephen Hester at RBS say they can, and will. Jury is out.
Just dropped a line to Stephen Hester CEO Royal Bank of Scotland, you may wish to do the same! Hello I would like to address this to Stephen Hester RBS CEO. I do not like to kick a man or a company while it is down, particularly my bank of over 32 years custom, and now as a taxpaying shareholder, however I do want to make my feelings known about the shabby way my bank appears to have been run over the last 10 years or so. Many of the failings including the latest to come to light, the LIBOR rigging, appear to stem from the ludicrous bonus payments to senior executives. It has encouraged a climate that means maximising your bonus at the expense of customers, investors and shareholders. You claim that the LIBOR scandal was limited to just 20 or so bad eggs, but this scandal was spread across so many banks that it must of had tacit approval from some senior managers across all the banks involved. I am sorry but banks no longer enjoy the benefit of doubt on this. Unless the bonus culture of the banking world ...
stephen hester. Boss of royal bank of scotland will b in line for a near £800,000 bonus just a week after the bank was fined £391 million for interest rate rigging. Over 80% of the bank is owned by the taxpayer. nice work if you can get it.
Barclays publishes record bad year-end results and agrees to sack 4000 people, yet its shares rose by 7% in today's trading. I'm sure this is a lesson in how the market works, but I'm struggling to keep up.
