Tens of thousands of ABN Amro customers have switched to Rabobank because of the ongoing takeover battle for ABN Amro, claims Rabobank.
Rabobank says some 500 people a day, on top of the normal traffic, are opening an account with one of its branch offices.
Between April to July, 40,000 people opened a Rabobank account, chairman Bert Heemskerk was quoted as saying in the Financieele Dagblad.
An ABN Amro spokesman admitted some customers had left. ‘But out of 4.5 million private customers it is a modest number,’ he told the paper.
The UK’s Barclays bank and a consortium led by Royal Bank of Scotland have been vying to takeover ABN Amro since April.
