“The Royal Bank of Scotland Group made a strategic decision over 10 years ago to work with Tsys, during which time we have made many enhancements to our products and customer proposition,” said William Higgins, director, group operations, RBS. “After a thorough review process, we have made the decision to remain with TSYS for an extended period, and we look forward to further developing the partnership.”
