RBS to create new internal bad bank to house problem loans
LONDON Nov 1 (Reuters) - Royal Bank of Scotland said on Friday it would create an internal "bad bank" to manage the run-down of its riskiest assets after the government stopped short of ordering a full break up.
RBS said it would place 38 billion pounds ($61.05 billion) worth of assets into a new 'Capital Resolution Division' next year.
RBS said the internal restructuring would free up between 10 billion pounds and 11 billion pounds of capital, leaving it better placed to lend.
