 ING Group : ING publishes historical trend data adjusted for changes in the
                        Insurance reporting structure

ING announced today that, starting per the first quarter of 2013, it will
align its Insurance reporting structure with the evolving restructuring of ING
Group. As previously announced, ING is making preparations for standalone
futures for Insurance/Investment Management Europe and ING U.S., its US based
retirement, investment and insurance business. Adjusted historical trend data
are published today to allow easy comparison with first quarter 2013 results
that will be published on 8 May 2013.

In the reporting structure, the Insurance Total section will be replaced by
Insurance EurAsia and Insurance US. ING Investment Management will be
presented as two new segments, one within Insurance EurAsia and one within
Insurance US. Most of Corporate Line Insurance will be allocated to the
Insurance EurAsia and US sections, while some funding related results, Group
shareholders' expenses, and results of unallocated insurance businesses and
activities will be reflected under Insurance Other.

  oInsurance EurAsia will reflect Insurance Benelux, Insurance CRE,
    Investment Management and Corporate Line, as well as the Asia insurance
    and investment management operations in 'net results from discontinued
    operations'.
  oInsurance US will reflect the US insurance business, Investment
    Management, the US closed block VA and Corporate Line.
