LONDON (Reuters) – Britain could sell a stake worth at least 3 billion pounds in Royal Bank of Scotland as soon as this week, Sky News reported on Monday, citing banking sources.
The British government still holds a stake of more than 70 percent in the bank after stepping in with a taxpayer bailout during the financial crisis.
RBS and Britain’s finance ministry were not immediately available to comment on the report.
