Mongolia[edit]

On the map, Mongolia is grey, yet it is on the list of places where ING operate. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.102.52.2 (talk) 14:10, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

ING Direct section[edit]

The ING Direct section seems excessively long/detailed compared to the article as a whole, I don't want to go in and delete information recklessly, what do people think? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ibmonkey88 (talkcontribs) 00:12, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

The statement that ING Direct Canada has been sold is incorrect, this is still part of the group. Only the insurance section of ING Canada was sold-off: http://www.ing.com/group/showdoc.jsp?docid=367050_EN 24.132.106.8 (talk) 06:24, 24 April 2011 (UTC)

ING Australia[edit]

The statement that "ING Australia had been defrauded of $45 Million" doesn't belong under ING Direct Australia. ING Australia (insurance/superannuation), distinct from ING Direct Australia, was the company this article related to. ING Australia was purchased by ANZ in 2009, and rebranded as "OnePath" in 2010: http://www.onepath.com.au/aboutOnePath/9890.aspx. ING Direct Australia remains part of the group.

Thanks. Fixed it. I think I've got it right now, but please correct (with refs) if I've missed something. peterl (talk) 11:06, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

Pronunciation?[edit]

Could anyone indicate the correct (=Dutch?) pronunciation? In radio ads here in Italy, it is roughly pronounced as "E-N-G" would be pronounced in English, which is in fact what led me to search what country the company is from :-) —Gennaro Prota•Talk 16:38, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

Insurance section[edit]

I have just removed the insurance section as a clear copyvio. As such, it needs rewriting. If any of the rest of the article has been copied word-for-word, it really needs to be removed. J Milburn (talk) 17:29, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

Cites for capital injection/repayment section[edit]

I updated the Capital injection/repayment section, but didn't have time to sprinkle in the appropriate citations. If anyone wants to do it before I get a chance to come back, here are some useful reference links:

Discrepancy[edit]

In the lede, it says that ING is the 18th largest company in the world by sales with $150 billion. The source is the 2012 Fortune 500 list. However, looking at the company's actual income statement, I see that sales were in fact, $42.6 billion. So far, I have been unable to account for this discrepancy but, admittedly, I haven't spent too much time on it. There may be sales that are presented on a different financial statement of a separate subsidiary -- I don't know. However, if a real accounting for the discrepancy between the two numbers cannot be produced, then the sentence must be deleted. After all, the income statement is straight from the horse's mouth. ask123 (talk) 19:40, 12 September 2013 (UTC)
