In his presentation, Lard Friese will elaborate on NN Group’s strategy and its investment proposition focused on cash generation, following the Group’s recent listing on Euronext Amsterdam. With strong and diversified business positions in Europe and Japan, NN Group is well positioned to navigate through the low rate environment, improve earnings and generate cash, while maintaining a strong capital position.
