The part-sale of Coutts, which counts Queen Elizabeth II among its rich and famous clients, is in line with RBS's strategy of scaling back its international operations following a huge bailout of the bank by the British government during the 2008 financial crisis. RBS will keep Coutts' British arm following the deal for the international unit reportedly worth between $600 million and $800 million (550 million and 730 million euros), according to the Financial Times newspaper.
