About ABN AMRO

ABN AMRO Bank N.V. is a Dutch state-owned bank with headquarters in Amsterdam. It was re-established, in its current form, in 2009 following the acquisition and break up of ABN AMRO Group by a banking consortium consisting of Royal Bank of Scotland Group, Santander and Fortis. Following the collapse of Fortis, the acquirer of the Dutch business, it was nationalized by the Dutch government along with Fortis Bank Nederland. The bank is a product of a long history of mergers and acquisitions that date back to 1765. In 1991 Algemene Bank Nederland (ABN) and Amsterdam and Rotterdam Bank (AMRO, which was in itself the result of a merger, see main article on AMRO Bank) agreed to merge to create the original ABN AMRO. By 2007 ABN AMRO was the second largest bank in the Netherlands and eighth largest banks in Europe by assets.
