Stuart Johnstone has been appointed head of capital management, commercial and private banking at RBS, effectively taking over Angela Potter’s responsibilities, GTR understands.

He took on his new role in June, but has been at the bank since 2008, most recently as head of portfolio and capital management, international banking.

GTR reported in May that Potter was leaving her role as managing director of transaction services UK at RBS to join Deutsche Bank’s global transaction banking division, though her start date has yet to be confirmed.
