“Ian Fraser is one of the most far-sighted, engaging and downright hard-working journalists in Scotland. He has spotted stories, uncovered scandals and written about them in a detailed and accessible way that leaves many in the dust”—Eamonn O’Neill, associate professor, Edinburgh Napier University
Shredded: Inside RBS The Bank That Broke Britain
My book Shredded: Inside RBS, The Bank That Broke Britain, has been described as the “definitive account” of the extraordinary rise and calamitous fall of the Royal Bank of Scotland. It was long-listed for Financial Times and McKinsey Business Book of the Year and named as a book of the year by the Financial Times, Bloomberg, Huffington Post and The Week. First published in June 2014, a revised and updated edition was published in October 2015
Other recent projects have included researching and helping to produce eight documentary programs for the BBC, including RBS: Inside The Bank That Ran Out of Money, which was shortlisted for a BAFTA.
Research, writing, commissioning, editing
I’m available for freelance assignments including research, writing, commissioning and editing. Sectors covered include banking, financial markets, economics, energy and small & medium sized enterprises (SMEs). Strengths include excellent contacts in business and finance and the ability to make complex subjects accessible to a general audience.

In recent years, I have been interviewed about banking and finance by broadcasters including BBC News, Sky News, ITN, STV News, BBC Radio 5 Live, BBC Radio Scotland, LBC, Radio New Zealand, Talk Nation Radio (US), The Keiser Report and Going Underground.
