ING Group: Ralph Hamers to present at Goldman Sachs Conference

        ING Group: Ralph Hamers to present at Goldman Sachs Conference

Today, Ralph Hamers, CEO of ING Group, will address the Goldman Sachs 18^th
Annual European Financials Conference in Madrid.

In his presentation, Mr Hamers will elaborate on the bank's strategy which was
first announced on 31 March 2014 at the ING Investor Day in Amsterdam. With
strong financials, a unique business model and an attractive portfolio, ING is
well positioned to take advantage of the transformation that is taking place
in the banking landscape.

He will also highlight the recently announced IPO of NN Group which signalled
the launch of the final major transaction in ING's restructuring, paving the
way for the repositioning of ING as a pure bank.

Today's presentation "Think Forward, Act Now" by Ralph Hamers can be
viewed/downloaded via ING's corporate website or SlideShare.
