Amsterdam, 10 April 2014
In the second quarter of 2015, NN Group will combine its headquarters, currently located in Amsterdam, with its main business location in the Netherlands in The Hague.
Lard Friese, vice-chairman NN Group: “In our continuous efforts to further optimise our operations, we have inves-tigated all options with regard to our office locations in the Netherlands. As a result, we have decided to move our headquarters from ‘ING House’ in Amsterdam to our premises in The Hague, the ‘Haagse Poort’. With this decision we bring our headquarter functions closer to our business activities in the Netherlands and reduce costs at the same time. Our employees will have more opportunities for flexible work locations.”
Office building ‘The Haagse Poort’ already houses Nationale-Nederlanden and ING Investment Management.
The other main NN Group office locations in The Netherlands are based in Rotterdam (Delftse Poort) and Ede (Veluwe Poort). NN Group will maintain ownership of the Amsterdam office building (ING House). The building will be redesigned to house multiple tenants.
