Statement of the CEO, Paulus de Wilt

“In 2023, we have continued to execute our focused strategy as an entrepreneurial asset based financier. Backed by the launch of the new brand positioning at the beginning of the year, we have further strengthened our asset based finance proposition, resulting in growth in all core segments. In addition, we have successfully found a new setting for both our CLO platform and our equity investment activities, enabling both teams to pursue further growth outside of NIBC.

In a dynamic world with significant changes in economic circumstances, monetary policy-making and consequently in financial markets, we have again proven our ability to adapt to a changing context. With shifting preferences in the Dutch mortgage market, we have been able to use our broad and flexible offering to meet changed customer demand. With our attractive savings products, we have welcomed approximately 15,000 new Dutch savings clients, growing the savings portfolio to EUR 11.3 billion, up 7% from last year. Within Asset Based Finance, we continue to explore new financing opportunities, often with a focus on contributing to sustainable goals such as redevelopment of offices into modern residential property. Both our platform offerings continue to report double digit growth of their portfolios and both contribute positively to NIBC’s performance.

On the back of these developments, we deliver a strong financial performance, as return on target CET 1 capital improved to 16.5%. This follows from a 32% increase of net profit to EUR 204 million, proving that our focused strategy is paying off. Performance is driven by the positive development of the bank’s net interest income, fueled by growth in all core segments and reduced funding costs. Additionally, strict cost management has helped reduce the bank’s cost/income ratio to 44%, even though the bank continues to invest in further enhancing its technological capabilities. Following active de-risking of the portfolios and portfolio choices, credit losses remain moderate, with negligible losses in core asset classes.

With our CET 1 ratio increasing to 18.8%, the bank remains well-capitalised.

I am proud of the commitment and dedication of our people, working hard to execute on our strategy and to deliver value to our stakeholders. Looking ahead, we will continue to use our corporate PACE (professional, adaptive, collaborative and entrepreneurial) to enable ambitions and support our clients. Even though economic conditions are likely to remain challenging and uncertain, I am confident that NIBC is well-positioned to adapt to changing circumstances and make use of the opportunities that this will bring for both our clients and the bank itself. Backed by the strong results we report today and using our ‘Think Yes’ mentality and entrepreneurial spirit, I look forward to continue to support our clients in 2024.”
