Operating income also rose 2% year-on-year, from €2,162m to €2,211m.
Robert Swaak, chief executive, said: “In the third quarter, we once again delivered a strong financial result with continued high net interest income (NII) compared with last year, supported by high other income and impairment releases. The Dutch economy is cooling down and uncertainty about the economy and inflation remains, while I continue to be concerned about the ongoing uncertainty in the geopolitical environment.
“Slowing economic growth contrasts with our strong business momentum. Demand for credit remains good and both our mortgage and corporate loan books increased. Our market share in mortgages increased to 15%, while house prices are rising due to improved affordability.”
He continued: ” I am pleased that the Dutch government’s stake in ABN AMRO is now below 50%. We have made huge strides with the bank since 2010. We are now a stable bank with a strong focus on clients’ interests, laying a healthy foundation for further reduction of the State’s shareholding.
“I am honoured by the trust the Supervisory Board has placed in me and by the opportunity to lead this great bank for another four years. I am proud of what we, together with all our colleagues, have achieved for all our stakeholders. I would like to thank our clients and our people foremost for their unwavering commitment as we continue our journey as a personal bank in the digital age.”
