ING has announced its plans to withdraw from the retail banking market in the Czech Republic.

In March, customers will receive an invitation from Raiffeisenbank to move to this bank over the coming months.

The agreement with Raiffeisenbank has been secured to ensure ING’s customers in the Czech Republic can continue to meet their banking needs.

ING customers will receive the option to move their savings and investments to Raiffeisenbank at preferential conditions. The agreement between ING Czech Republic and Raiffeisenbank Czech Republic is pending regulatory approval.

The ambition is for ING to stop all its retail activities in this market by the end of 2021. According to information, ING will remain active in the Czech Republic as a provider of wholesale banking products and services.

ING has been present in the Czech retail banking market for over 20 years, offering savings accounts and mutual funds.

We continuously evaluate our activities, including assessing whether they are likely to achieve the preferred scale in their market within a reasonable time frame. In this context we have decided to exit the Czech retail market, sharpening the focus of our business portfolio. We are confident that our customers are well -served by the attractive offer from Raiffeisenbank, which has a proven customer-centric and digital track record
