Gerrit Zalm, Chairman of the Managing Board of ABN AMRO: “ABN AMRO, the bank that was listed on the Amsterdam stock exchange today, is different from its predecessor, which operated under the same name. ABN AMRO is a bank with a primary focus on the Netherlands and with well-considered and selective operations internationally. We would like to express our gratitude to our clients, our employees and our shareholder, society. It is thanks to them that we are here today. Also many thanks to Euronext Amsterdam for its efforts in making this listing a success. We look forward to continuing our cooperation in the future.”
