However, this has now been postponed because he has decided to keep using all of that Business Banking relationship experience. 

He says, “Increasingly businesses are saying we can’t wait for an appointment in two weeks time when we need an answer now. This isn’t surprising given that opportunities such as being able to buy a competitor's stock at half price don’t last for long.
