5 Chairman s statement Chairman s statement In 2006, the Group once again demonstrated its inherent strength and breadth, achieving impressive growth and capital generation enabling us to increase the dividend by 25% and raise our payout ratio to 45%. At last year s AGM, Sir George Mathewson stood down as Chairman and the Board appointed me as his successor. George s 18 years at the helm of RBS, as Group Chief Executive and latterly Chairman, marked an extraordinary period of growth and success. I thank him for the fine legacy he provided and for all the help he gave me in ensuring a smooth and easy transition. Over the last year I have travelled widely across the Group, meeting many employees, customers and shareholders in Europe, the US and across the Asia Pacific region. I have been deeply impressed with the RBS people I have met and have found our businesses to be in good health, continuing to grow strongly and making significant impact in their respective markets. Financial performance and use of capital In 2006 the Group operating profit increased by 14% to 9,414 million (2005 8,251 million). Total income grew by 10% to 28,002 million ( ,569 million), while operating expenses grew by just 8% to 12,252 million ( ,298 million). Impressive profit growth in 2006 coupled with increased distribution, which helped minimise the capital required to support origination, enabled us to be strongly capital generative. As a consequence, the Board is recommending raising the total dividend by 25%, which raises the payout ratio to 45%. In addition, we completed the repurchase of 1 billion of shares announced last year. Our adjusted return on equity increased to 19.0% from 18.2% in 2005, and our total shareholder return in 2006 was 18%, in line with the average over the last decade. Bonus share issue The company s shares traded at an average price of over the course of 2006 and have moved higher since. This is significantly above the average share price of companies trading on the London Stock Exchange and we believe that many shareholders prefer to deal in shares with a lower price per share, more in line with the average. We therefore propose to adjust the price per share by a bonus issue of two new ordinary shares of 25p for each ordinary share held. Staff profit sharing This is the ninth successive year we have announced a profit share of 10% of salary for all eligible employees, in addition to performance bonuses. On behalf of the Board, I would like to express my warm thanks to our people for all they have done to deliver our success. Board of directors I would also like to thank my Board colleagues for their commitment and support during The economy and environment In general, we have enjoyed benign economic conditions which have proved favourable to our businesses, though there have been and will continue to be challenges. The Group is well positioned for growth in all its geographies and invested 2.8 billion in infrastructure in 2006 to support our growth ambitions. In the UK there has been much debate about the retail banking model. Studies have shown that the UK has one of the most efficient and competitive banking services in the world, offering excellent value to customers overall. With the largest branch network and the highest customer satisfaction scores amongst our peers we are confident that we will be able to respond effectively to any changes which may occur in the marketplace. The environment has appropriately become the focus of much attention. I am pleased to say that with our adoption of the revised Equator Principles and our approach to sustainability in all we do, RBS has established a fine reputation as a responsibly managed company. I have been proud to serve as your Chairman in 2006 and look forward to the continuing progress of The Royal Bank of Scotland Group. Sir Tom McKillop Chairman 4

8 The Group maintained strength and momentum in 2006 with higher earnings growth and an improved return on equity. All our growth was organic and all our divisions contributed to it. We increased our total income by 10% and held our cost growth to 8%. Group operating profit increased by 14% to 9,414 million. We are building a group whose diversity, scale, distribution capacity and operational excellence can deliver superior, sustainable income growth, controlled risk and strong returns. Our 2006 results demonstrate once again the success of this model with particularly strong performances from Global Banking & Markets ( GBM ), UK Corporate Banking, Wealth Management and Ulster Bank. UK Retail banking, Citizens and RBS Insurance made good progress in the face of headwinds in their markets. In 2006, we continued to build our market share in UK retail, commercial and corporate banking, increased our customer base in Europe and made good progress in building a platform for sustained growth in North America. We have also laid the foundations for a growing share in the vibrant financial services markets of the Asia Pacific region. The breadth of the Group s businesses is reflected in our results: 42% of our operating profit came from our international operations. Sound control of risk is fundamental to the Group s business. While we grew average customer lending by 14%, impairment losses have increased by just 10%. Central to this is our longstanding aversion to sub-prime lending, wherever we do business. We have also maintained the customer-driven nature of our trading activities, as reflected in trading income growth of 14%, compared with an increase of only 9% in our average daily value at risk. Our customers The Group continues to hold the highest market share in UK corporate banking and we are now the joint leader in the personal current account market. RBS has once again secured top position and NatWest is joint second among major High Street banks for extremely satisfied customers, and we continued to invest in the expansion of our branch network in the UK. Through Ulster Bank we expanded across the island of Ireland, and in the US, Citizens continued to broaden its customer base through the expansion of its credit card, merchant acquiring, small business and midcorporate activities. Our GBM and Wealth Management businesses are growing rapidly in Asia. Our shareholders The capital generated by our businesses during 2006 has enabled us to invest in profitable organic growth across the Group, carry out a 1 billion share buyback and we propose to raise our payout ratio to 45% through a final dividend of 66.4p, making a total of 90.6p for the year, an increase of 25%. Our people Our performance is the result of the hard work, energy and dedication of our 135,000 employees. We have made significant progress in recent years in the development of our people, by seeking and then acting upon feedback from them. A record 87% of our employees participated in the 2006 Employee Opinion Survey and we outperformed the Global Financial Services norm in every category. Our people told us, and our results demonstrate, that the Group provides a rewarding and stimulating working environment for personal and professional development. We continue to listen to them and invest to maintain our market-leading position. Bank of China We have made good progress in developing our partnership with Bank of China. Our joint credit card business has already issued 1.2 million cards, we are establishing a joint private banking business and have together completed a number of significant transactions in shipping, aviation and trade finance. Outlook Our proven business model delivered strong results in We are expanding our reach and making progress in all the major economies we operate in. We believe that the strategic choices we have made, together with the prospects for continued growth in the world economy, position us well for We remain confident in the Group s ability to take advantage of the many opportunities to invest profitably in sustainable growth.

Global Banking & Markets (GBM) GBM has a strong client franchise across our chosen markets. We have relationships with the great majority of the largest UK, US and European corporations and institutions, including over 95% of the FTSE 100, 80% of the Fortune 100, and over 95% of the Dow Jones Eurostoxx 50. GBM s employees serve the diverse needs of major corporates and financial institutions from offices in 21 countries around the world. GBM continues to invest significantly in people, infrastructure and technology to support growth and develop new product capabilities. GBM made significant progress in building its business internationally in Income grew by 18% in the US, 26% in Europe and 35% in the Asia Pacific region. To support international expansion we made significant investments in new offices and locations. Construction work started on new premises, which will bring together our people from RBS Greenwich Capital and RBS New York; a new office in Helsinki opened on 1 September 2006; and we moved to larger premises in Tokyo, Hong Kong and Singapore. Examples of GBM client transactions RBS teams in Spain and the UK successfully arranged the financing of the 15 billion acquisition of BAA, the world s leading airport operator, by a consortium led by Ferrovial. This complex transaction benefited from our knowledge of the Spanish and UK markets as well as our global distribution capabilities. RBS helped Arsenal Football Club sell 260 million secured long-dated bonds to refinance the shorter-term construction loans used to fund their new Emirates Stadium. The deal was described by Euroweek as arguably the most comprehensive application of structured finance techniques in an asset-backed securitisation deal yet in Europe. 13

15 Divisional review continued Corporate Markets continued Divisional review Corporate Markets In North America, RBS financed the energy sector s largest acquisition to date, that of Burlington Resources by ConocoPhillips, for $35 billion.

The shopping centre opened in March 2006 and was visited by more than three million people in its first month. RBS Structured Ship Finance successfully completed a financing programme in China for three ships for Shanghai Time Shipping for $60 million. We enabled the company to secure the ships offshore at attractive prices, and charter them in a strong international market. We also obtained Chinese government approvals to import, flag and register the vessels. This was the first joint ship financing by RBS working with Bank of China as its strategic partner in the Chinese market. RBS acted for Leighton Holdings Limited, Australia s largest construction and contract mining group, as Bookrunner, Mandated Lead Arranger, Residual Value Guarantor and joint Lead Manager for an AU$750 million leveraged operating lease facility and associated senior debt and bond financing. The purpose was to enable Leighton to fund their equipment requirements in a flexible and capital efficient maner. We were one of two joint Bookrunners and joint Lead Arrangers on Hutchison Whampoa Ltd s inaugural 700 million sterling debt capital issue. The company took advantage of attractive sterling market conditions, benefiting from a strong appetite for corporate names in longer-dated maturities, to launch and price an 11 and 20-year dual-tranche issue successfully. To date this is the largest ever sterling issue by a non-japanese Asia Pacific corporate. Ferrovial Our Global Banking teams in both Spain and the UK worked together to secure the 15 billion of acquisition funding required by Spanish infrastructure company, Ferrovial, for the purchase of BAA. Our knowledge of both the Spanish and UK markets and global distribution capability were important attributes for Ferrovial in selecting RBS. BAA Limited see 14
