Tilburg – Today, Achmea Bank completed the acquisition of a savings portfolio of some 125,000 customers and a volume of €1.7 billion and a mortgage portfolio with a volume of €1.5 billion. From now on, customers with a savings product from a.s.r. bank will be served by Centraal Beheer. In recent weeks, these customers have been notified of the change.
Achmea Bank’s acquisition of the portfolios is part of Achmea’s strategy to expand with financial products and services today, tomorrow and beyond. All the conditions for the acquisition have been met, including a statement of no objection from De Nederlandsche Bank and the agreement of employee representatives.
Willem van Duin, Chairman of the Executive Board of Achmea: “With our co-operative identity we are committed to provide a healthy, safe and future-proof society. A key part of this is proper retirement provision. This acquisition contributes to increasing the scale of our banking services. We are continuing to fully invest in further improvements in our service to our customers.”
Tilburg - Achmea wants to focus on growth in mortgages. Consequently, Achmea proposes to combine its operational mortgage activities. For Achmea Bank this means transferring its mortgage operations from Tilburg to Amsterdam, allowing the group’s operational mortgage activities to be concentrated at one location. These activities are currently spread over various Achmea locations.
Economies of scale and the pooling of knowledge will allow Achmea to provide even better service to its customers with appropriate and sustainable mortgage solutions. In this way, Achmea will enhance its strengths in the housing and mortgage markets.
Achmea is today taking a first step on this by combining its operational mortgage activities. In addition to modernising and developing its mortgage products, Achmea is focusing on granting and managing mortgages.
Achmea is one of the largest employers in the financial services industry in The Netherlands.
