Creating a differentiating customer experience: our starting point

ING Bank’s strategy aims to create a differentiating customer experience, enabled by simplify and streamlining our organisation, further striving for operational excellence, enhancing the performance culture within our company and expanding our lending capabilities. We will aim to become the primary bank for more customers through growing the share of payment accounts in retail banking and with anchor products such as lending and transaction services in wholesale banking.

ING believes all sustainable progress is driven by people with the imagination and determination to improve their future and the futures of those around them. We empower people and organisations to realise their own vision for a better future – however modest or grand. Our purpose therefore is: Empowering people to stay a step ahead in life and in business.
