The ongoing rebranding of ING Investment Management to NN Investment Partners became official on Tuesday 7th April, with 54.6 % of shares belonging to ING Group, the colour orange remains as well as the ongoing ING activities.

 

Stan Beckers, CEO of NN Investment Partners: “This is an exciting day for all of us at NN Investment Partners. The launch of our new brand is a fresh milestone in our journey to become the leading European-based provider of income generating solutions. As we move forward under our new name, we will continue to build on a heritage extending back 170 years.”

The merger follows the European commission recommendation that they separate their banking insurance activities from their asset management activities. This rebranding aims to improve NN’s position on a European scale but also within the Middle East, Asia and America. ING life Luxembourg became NN Life Luxembourg as of the 1st April keeping Pieter Coopmans as its CEO. Georges Wolff will remain the managing director of Luxembourg’s division of ING Investment Management and played a crucial part in the coordination of this transition. NN Investment Partners CIO Hans Stoter said: ‘The name NN Investment Partners underscores our belief that by partnering with our clients and working side by side with them, we can provide attractive and relevant solutions that meet their needs.’
