The Royal Bank of Scotland was once one of the most successful and profitable financial institutions in the world; revered, admired and trusted by millions of savers and investors; its fall has been one of the most catastrophic events of the on-going global financial crisis. Award-winning financial journalist, Ian Fraser, reveals new and never-revealed-before details about how the ‘light touch, limited touch’ approach to financial regulation of New Labour and the aggressive, confrontational, autocratic and reckless style of Fred Goodwin led to disaster, bringing the biggest company in the world to the very brink of ruin.

Chaired by Chris Mullin
