NatWest Bank Gibraltar.

THANKS to the fact that the UK Government has agreed to underwrite any Gibraltar Government borrowing up to a total of £500 million, it has now been announced that a facility for that amount has been made available by NatWest Bank.

The actual sum will be split equally between NatWest in the UK and NatWest International Gibraltar and the Government will be drawing down £150 million to repay a loan of that amount made by the Gibraltar International Bank.

It is estimated that dealing with Covid-19 has so far cost Gibraltar in excess of £125 million with Brexit still to be tackled.
