Dividend Policy & Payments

ING dividend policy

ING is committed to maintaining a healthy Group CET1 ratio in excess of prevailing fully-loaded requirements, currently 12.5% of risk weighted assets, and to returning capital to our shareholders. We aim to pay a progressive dividend over time.

The aim is to pay an interim dividend with our half year results, as well as a final dividend each year, both in cash. Dividend proposals will reflect considerations including expected future capital requirements, growth opportunities available to the Group, net earnings, and regulatory developments.

Payments per share represent gross amounts which are subject to Dutch dividend withholding tax. The full year dividend needs to be approved by the shareholders at the Annual General Meeting.
