The Telegraph reports that the Royal Bank of Scotland could be on course for its first full-year profit since its £45bn state bailout at the height of the financial crisis, after posting a third successive quarter of profits.
RBS posted £392m in profits for the three months to September and
£1.33bn for the year to date.
However, there is a down side. RBS is still waiting to see if it will be fined by the DoJ for selling subprime mortgages. The fine is expected to be around £6BN.
