About ING

The ING Group (Dutch: ING Groep N.V.) is the largest banking group in the Netherlands. The acronym ING stands for Internationale Nederlanden Groep (International Netherlands Group). Its main operating regions are the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and Germany. Since 2011, it has been among the globally systemically important banks.

ING Group was formed in 1991 through a merger between NMB Postbank Groep and insurance company Nationale-Nederlanden. The group began its international expansion by acquiring banking, insurance and asset management companies in Belgium, the United States, Canada, Germany, Poland and other countries, in particular in 1995 it bought the assets of the bankrupt Barings Bank. During the global financial crisis in 2008, the group had to resort to financial assistance from the Dutch government and, under the terms of this assistance, it sold its subsidiaries in the US, Canada and the UK and separated its insurance business into an independent NN Group.
