"Adding personalized protection products that are life-stage driven, will ensure we keep our customers ahead in life, empowering them to stay in control, in line with their widening demands. The initiative will also contribute to diversify our income. We are excited to embark on this journey with AXA and we are united in our vision. We believe that, between our leading digital banking capabilities and AXA's unparalleled insurance expertise, we will be able to build an international platform of significant value to our customers."

"We are excited about the opportunity to partner with ING to deliver a significant step change in the future of digital insurance solutions, leveraging our joint digital capabilities and innovative assets, and providing a differentiated customer experience to address ING customers' protection needs', said Thomas Buberl, CEO of AXA. 'The partnership with ING represents a strong meeting of minds and a shared ambition of becoming a partner in our customer's life journey.
