7. ING


ING is a global financial institution of Dutch origin, currently offering banking, investments, life insurance and retirement services to meet the needs of a broad customer base.

Going forward, we will concentrate on our position as a strong European bank with attractive home market positions in Northern Europe and growth options in Central and Eastern Europe and Asia, while creating an optimal base for independent futures for our insurance operations (including investment management).

To serve the interests of all our stakeholders, increase management focus and create value for our shareholders, ING is moving towards full separation of its banking and insurance operations. We believe the widespread demand for greater simplicity, reliability and transparency makes this the best course of action.
The separation is part of the restructuring plan as required by the European Commission in order to get approval for the Dutch state aid received during the financial crisis.
