Robert Swaak, CEO, comments:

Developments in the third quarter were encouraging: Dutch society has largely reopened and government support has been withdrawn, though the rise in Covid infectionsremains a concern. Demand for lending showed signs of recovery and both our mortgage book and corporate loan book grew.Our clients increasingly focus on the future and we are there to support them through our trusted relationships and expertise. We continue to deliveron our agenda as we are well ahead of plan in the wind-down of the CIB non-core portfolio, we have paid out the final 2019 dividend, have agreed a compensation scheme for revolving consumer credit and are simplifying our organisational structure.

Net profit in Q3 2021 was EUR 343 million, delivering a 6.5% return on equity (7.8% excluding CIB non-core) despite continued pressure on net interest income and a EUR 217 million provision for revolving consumer credit. While pressure from deposit margins and the CIB non-core wind-down continues, our operating performance remained solidand fee income improved by 19% (excluding CIB non-core).Impairments showed a small net release of EUR 12 million as the credit environment remained benign. We expect the cost of risk for 2021 to bearound nil.Our capital position remains very strong, with a Basel III CET1 ratio of 17.8% (Basel IV around 16%). We are in a constructive dialogue with the regulator on potential share buybacks after the FY 2021 results have been announced.
