About the course

The Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management (ULB), in collaboration with ING Belgium, is pleased to invite you to its next Solvay Business Voice Series about the future of banking sector.

The last 10 years have been tumultuous for the banking sector. The banking crisis was the origin of the most severe global recession since World War II, the “Great Recession”. This downturn started in the Fall of 2008 and has left lasting macroeconomic damage, highlighting moreover shortcomings in the architecture of the Eurozone from which it is only now gradually recovering. This recovery is due in large part to the expansionary policy of the ECB, which in turn is not free from challenges for the banking sector. Coupled with other challenges like increased customer expectations, entry, and expansion from, as well new non-banking, as already existing banking companies, tightened regulations and tax increases, the result is a burning platform. One that ING aims to turn into a burning ambition: becoming the number one bank in the Benelux in all segments.

In this conference, the CEO of ING Belgium, Erik Van Den Eynden, will explain ING’s vision on the future of banking. He will comment on the challenges of today and ING’s solutions that will help realize the ambition to become the number one bank in all segments.

Mathias Dewatripont, Professor of Economics and Vice Dean of the Solvay Brussels School, will be the moderator of this conference.
