ING has a two-tier board structure consisting of the Executive Board and the Supervisory Board. In ING's view, a two-tier board is the best way to create the proper checks and balances in the company.
The Executive Board is responsible for day-to-day management of the business and long-term strategy. The Supervisory Board is responsible for controlling management performance and advising the Executive Board. The Supervisory Board is made up exclusively of outside directors.
In line with the April 2009 strategy announcement, ING has taken measures to simplify governance. To increase the business focus of the Group’s leadership, Banking and Insurance now have their own Management Board consisting of the Group CEO, CFO and CRO and positions for four members.
