In 1985, Citizens changed status from a mutual savings bank to a federal stock savings bank. Expansion into other states began with Massachusetts in 1986. In 1988, Citizens accepted a takeover bid from the Scottish based bank, the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), which used Citizens Bank as a stepping stone into the American market. In the following sixteen years under RBS ownership, Citizens acquired several smaller banks in the New England area to become the second largest bank in the region. In 1996, the acquisition of First NH Bank saw the Bank of Ireland gain a 23.5% stake in Citizens, which was repurchased two years later by RBS.

Expansion outside New England began in 2001, when RBS purchased the retail banking division of Mellon Financial Corporation in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, and three years later, bought Cleveland-based Charter One Bank for $10.5 billion with branches in Illinois, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, upstate New York, and Vermont. (The Charter One name was retained in the Midwest where a different Citizens Bank operates, though it adopted a logo similar to Citizens. Charter One branches in New York and Vermont were re-branded as Citizens Bank.) The deal made Citizens Financial the ninth largest bank in the United States with over $128 billion in assets and 1,400 branches across 13 states, making Citizens Financial Group contribute 25% to the profits of RBS.

In 2004 RBS purchased the financially disastrous credit card division of Connecticut-based People's Bank. This purchase allows Citizens to issue and market its own credit cards. In addition, RBS purchased Lynk systems of Atlanta, Georgia to processes non-cash transactions (such as credit, debit, EBT, loyalty, gift, and check transactions) from merchant point-of-sale terminals, web sites, and ATMs. The company has been rebranded as RBS Lynk.

In early 2005, seven Citizens Bank branches in Butler County, Pennsylvania had planned to be rebranded with the Charter One name. This rebranding resolved a 3 1/2-year-old name dispute with Butler-based Citizens National Bank. By mid-2005, Citizens National and Citizens Financial agreed to a compromise. Citizens National Bank changed their name to NexTier Bank, while the Citizens Financial Group branches maintained the "Citizens Bank" name. Butler County is a county located in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania and part of the Pittsburgh Metropolitan Statistical Area. ...


A new corporate logo, designed to show Citizens Bank's connection to the Royal Bank of Scotland Group, debuted in 2005.

With this accqusition came GreatBanc's 10 banking locations and 14 ATMs throughout Cook, McHenry and Will counties.
