Fortis and shareholders lobby to talk

Fortis has invited shareholders lobby group VEB to discuss its plans to ‘sharply expand its capital’, the VEB said on Thursday.

Financial director Gilbert Mittler and Filip Dierckx, chairman of Fortis Bank, will represent the company. Earlier this week, the VEB called for an EGM to discuss the financial services group’s plans to boost its solvency by €8bn.
