Titel ING to invest in its retail banking branch network in the Netherlands
Bericht ING announced today that it will make a substantial investment in its retail banking branch network in the Netherlands to further raise ING’s potential for future growth. The investment will enhance the quality of services for the combined customer base of ING Bank and Postbank by creating a nationwide banking network of over 800 branches. This investment is in line with ING’s retail banking strategy in the Netherlands to combine Postbank and ING Bank under one single brand to meet the growing demand of its customers for direct banking services in combination with access to personal financial advice. According to the plans, the Postbank services currently offered in the 250 main post offices will be transferred to 283 modern, open, full service ING branches. These branches will improve ING’s capabilities to provide both ING Bank and Postbank customers with access to personal financial advice and the full range of its products and services. In addition, ING will extend access of its 550 Postbank outlets located in shops to ING Bank’s customer base. ING‘s total branch network will consist of more than 800 branches. To further increase customer proximity and quality of services, ING will have more branches close to shopping centres and extend the opening hours to after office hours in the coming years. In conjunction, both ING and TNT have agreed to gradually unwind their joint venture Postkantoren B.V. over the next five years. ING will take a provision of EUR 87 million for the restructuring costs in the first quarter of 2008 and expects to generate additional pre tax earnings of EUR 68 million per year as of 2012. In addition, ING plans to make an investment of EUR 175 million to expand and enhance its full service branches over a period of five years.
