Germany

Germany is one of the world’s major exporters and largest economies in Europe. Its main export products range from motor vehicles and machinery, to pharmaceuticals and textiles. Services contribute to the majority of Germany’s economic make-up, followed by construction and industry. Agriculture is a small portion of Germany’s GDP; however, the country is still ranked as one of the top agricultural producers within the European Union. Also, as one of the largest consumers of energy, it is a leader in developing and using green technologies.

ING came to Germany in 1987 and the operation is headed from the country’s financial capital, Frankfurt. Since then we have become a strong partner for a number of Germany’s largest corporations and institutions. We have assisted some of these clients to branch out to foreign markets, for instance in Central & Eastern Europe (CEE) and Asia.

We ensure you have direct access to ING Wholesale Banking’s global network and product expertise. Our international product network already meets the needs of many German clients, especially those within the Benelux and CEE. Our products are tailored to your exact needs, so we can ensure that you can move your business forward. We will integrate our services to the way you do business.  So tell us, how can we help you?

  • Germany is the largest economy in Europe
  • Present since 1987
  • Proven track record with Germany’s largest corporations
  • Access to a strong international network, particularly in the Benelux and CEE
  • Client focus, tailored services
