“ING is strong. The market is not growing, but it’s offering competitive opportunities,” said Michal Szczurek, CEO ING Bank Romania.

The loan book increased by 2 percent to RON 9.6 billion, due to gains in both the retail and corporate segments. The savings and deposits portfolio expanded by 7 percent to RON 11 billion, driven by the retail operations.

Szczurek stated the risk costs rose by 60 percent driven by 3 to 4 big cases. He added losses in the banking sector amounted last year to RON 2.1 billion (EUR 471 million).

ING officials said they will stick to retail lending in the local currency RON.
