Report: Coutts banker accused of inappropriate behavior resigns

Harry Keogh, the Coutts & Co. banker at the center of a harassment and inappropriate behavior issue, has resigned from the bank, a spokeswoman for parent company Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc told Reuters.

Although the spokeswoman did not cite a reason for Keogh's departure, it follows a report by The Wall Street Journal that Keogh was allowed to keep his job as a senior banker despite an internal inquiry confirming allegations of inappropriate behavior. The spokeswoman said Keogh, who was market leader for sports and entertainment and managed relationships with some of the bank's most influential clients, resigned in the week of March 19, according to the report.

Over 20 bankers alleged that Keogh and his team made lewd comments, engaged in heavy drinking and physically and verbally harassed female colleagues, according to the WSJ piece. Michael Morley, Coutts' then-CEO, reportedly told colleagues and RBS that Keough should resign but he was allowed to stay following discussions with Alison Rose, RBS' head of commercial and private banking.

He was reportedly denied a bonus, issued a written warning and assigned a coach.

Keogh did not immediately respond to a request for comment, the newswire said.
