It utilises relationship managers based in Wales to work closely with businesses of all shapes and sizes in every sector of the economy.

Alix Popham, former Wales rugby international and co-founder of the Entrepreneur Wales Awards, said: "As one of the leading providers of financial services in Wales, it's fantastic to see a bank that genuinely cares about businesses and entrepreneurs in Wales. Everyone at the Entrepreneur Wales Awards is excited to work with NatWest to celebrate the amazing stories Welsh entrepreneurs have to tell."

Kevin Morgan, regional director of business banking for Wales at NatWest, said: "NatWest Cymru is very proud to be supporting the Entrepreneur Wales Awards which is rapidly garnering a reputation as one of the country’s best events for Welsh businesses.
