NWB Bank lends more to sustainable energy projects and the water sector

    1 September 2019

    NWB Bank was able to maintain its market share in the financing of the Dutch public sector in the first half of 2019, and increased its market share in the water sector. Lending in the first half of the year increased to €4.4 billion, partly due to the acquisition of a portfolio of Dutch public sector loans from ABN AMRO Bank. Net profit for the first half of 2019 amounted to €41.8 million (2018: €58.5 million). The decline in profit compared with the previous year was expected and is mainly the result of the outflow of higher yielding positions in the bank’s loan and liquidity portfolio. Total assets stood at €90.7 billion at the end of June.
