LONDON (Reuters) - Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS.L) said a scheme to compensate small firms hurt by its restructuring unit will close to new complaints after it paid out just 10 million pounds ($13 million) so far for direct losses. RBS announced the scheme in November 2016 and set aside 400 million pounds to compensate thousands of small businesses that say they were mistreated by RBS’s Global Restructuring Group (GRG).
