AMSTERDAM, Netherlands, April 16, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ING announced today that it has published updated Historical Trend Data that have been adjusted to reflect various reporting changes that will be implemented starting the first quarter of 2015.
Some changes will be made to align reporting with the new regional segmentation as announced in ING's Think Forward strategy.
Additionally, reporting on results at Bank Treasury will be amended by allocating them across both Retail and Commercial Banking segments in all countries, whereas they were previously fully allocated in either Retail Banking or Commercial Banking.
To facilitate comparison with ING Bank's first quarter 2015 results, to be published on 7 May 2015, the updated Historical Trend Data 4Q2014 document is published on ing.com. This document, which includes an introduction describing all reporting changes, can be downloaded here.
