"ING Research is a highly skilled and innovative team that offers keen insights every day that not only add value for our customers, but also for society as a whole,"
"As chief economist, I am honored to lead this team. It is my ambition for economists to commit even more to social issues, such as providing more insights to promote smart growth or publishing socially relevant research, which we have done in the Netherlands on a regular basis. Furthermore, I believe that sustainability will become a more prominent theme for our research arm. We will continue to focus on current issues while maintaining a long-term perspective. I'm excited to collaborate even more closely with my international colleagues."
