Andy NobleHead of Whistleblowing and Speak Up at NatWest Group
Andy is Head of Whistleblowing and Speak Up for the NatWest Group. Starting his career with NatWest in 1984, he has held numerous front line and risk function roles, predominantly in the Retail and Private Banking sectors. His experience spans compliance, operational risk, credit risk and financial crime.
Following the introduction of new whistleblowing regulations by the UK’s financial regulators in 2016, Andy led the development and implementation of a group-wide whistleblowing framework at NatWest (formerly RBS). This provides a mechanism for colleagues across the bank to confidentially raise concerns about unethical behaviour and wrongdoing, helping to support a strong risk culture.
Andy was also a Special Constable with the Metropolitan Police Service for 29 years. He received a long service award from the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police prior to retiring in 2018.
