Former senior Royal bank of Scotland (RBS) bankers Leith Robertson, Euan Hamilton and David Giffen, have formed a corporate advisory business, Cramond Capital, in Edinburgh, Herald Scotland has reported.

The newly formed company’s website says it aims to provide "highly flexible capital solutions to UK-based businesses, and will consider investing through a wide range of debt and equity channels".

The team is "currently reviewing a range of investment opportunities from across the UK."

Robertson retired from RBS in February 2009 as deputy chief executive of global banking and markets.
Euan Hamilton, who left RBS more recently, was deputy chief executive of the bank’s ‘non-core division’, responsible for overseeing the exit of more than £75 billion of non-core assets over an 18 month period.

Giffen was Bank of Scotland’s head of leveraged finance until he joined RBS in 1999 as a director in the private equity business, which he headed from 2005 to 2008 when the portfolio was worth £2 billion.
