ASN Bank the sustainable bank
Together with the Triodos bank, ASN Bank is a sustainable bank. ASN Bank has a long history that originated from the union. The union was well aware that poor working conditions and poor environmental management ultimately fall on the employees who have to do the work. This led to the desire to set up a bank that would work on sustainable and responsible investments at home and abroad. A sympathetic idea that has attracted many savers since its founding in 1960. The bank regularly wins an award for its activities. And the bank does not stand still. Where many savings accounts and savings forms used to be offered, it has been decided to cut this number of savings forms. This saves costs and gives you the opportunity to give you a high savings interest rate.
ASN Bank is part of de Volksbank
ASN Bank was an independent bank with only one shareholder: SNS Reaal. Now that SNS Reaal is in dire straits due to a bad real estate portfolio, ASN Bank is a trade name of de Volksbank NV
ASN Bank and the deposit guarantee scheme
The deposit guarantee scheme of the Dutch Bank also means for ASN Bank that your savings per person are guaranteed up to a maximum of 100,000 euros. Together with your partner, this is a guarantee of 200,000 euros. For every bank, including ASN Bank, it is better to stay below these amounts when saving. For many people this maximum is sufficient, for others it is always better to spread their savings over a few banks to be safe. This does not mean, however, that ASN Bank will collapse. ASN Bank is running well. Moreover, SNS Reaal is a system bank and a system bank has always received support from the Dutch State when necessary, which makes it relatively safe to save with a system bank. ASN Bank can also be sold to another bank. Sustainability scores high and ASN Bank meets the requirements.
