A RBS, Royal Bank of Scotland, illuminated sign and logo are seen through a window of their offices as a bus is reflected driving past in London, Thursday, June 13, 2013. Bailed-out U.K. lender Royal Bank of Scotland said Wednesday that Stephen Hester will step down as chief executive later this year — a move that creates some uncertainty as the bank prepares to return to the private sector. The board of the bank, which is 81 percent owned by the taxpayer after it was rescued by the U.K. government in 2008, said Hester was unable to make an open-ended commitment to lead the bank back into the private sector after having already served five years. The search for a successor will begin immediately. (AP Photo/Matt Dunham) less
