Achmea Bank is joining the Achmea Mortgages Investment Platform of Syntrus Achmea Real Estate & Finance. This platform is a separate account for mortgages which allows institutional investors to build their own Dutch residential mortgage portfolio with the risk profile they desire. These mortgages are marketed under the Centraal Beheer brand. Achmea Bank N.V. and Achmea Pension & Life N.V. are the first investors in this platform.
The introduction of the Achmea Mortgages Investment Platform is another step forward for Achmea in the previously announced process of combining its mortgage activities. As of 1 October 2020, Achmea's mortgage activities have largely been placed with Syntrus Achmea. In addition to Centraal Beheer, Achmea's new mortgage company also works for the Attens, Woonfonds, Tellius and Syntrus Achmea brands.
The mortgage portfolio of all Achmea labels together amounted to approximately 28 billion euros at the end of June 2020. By joining forces of its mortgage activities and the introduction of the Achmea Mortgages Investment Platform, Achmea aims to increase its market share in the mortgage market in the coming years.
