Physical Pooling

Optimise cash flow and enhance liquidity management beyond cross-border and local subsidiary accounts by consolidating cash balances into a central location.

ING’s physical pooling allows you to sweep physical funds from individual subsidiary accounts into a header control account, concentrating cash funds in one location for improved oversight, control, and cash flow availability.
