LONDON, Nov 22 (Reuters) – Britain’s finance minister Jeremy Hunt said he would explore options for a NatWest (NWG.L) share offer to the public in the next 12 months, to allow the government to reduce its stake in the bank.
The government has been slowly reducing its stake in NatWest since bailing out the lender during the 2008-9 global financial crisis, but retains around 39%. The bank was returned to majority private control last year after a string of stock sales, mainly to institutional investors.
