Six senior ABN Amro executives renounce bonus
March 30 , 2015
Six senior executives at ABN Amro have renounced a bonus of €100,000 following a “public commotion”, the Dutch bank has said.
The bank said that the outcry had been “detrimental” to employees, clients and public trust. It said that it regretted the “turbulence that has arisen”.
The financial crisis of 2008 had triggered the nationalization of ABN Amro.
In its statement, the bank said that by renouncing the allowance of the managing directors, ABN Amro was “putting the interests of the bank and the public first.”
