ING wants to sell some property


ING Groep NV, the largest Dutch financial services company, said it’s in talks with potential bidders for parts of its global real estate investment unit as it attempts to reduce property-related risk. The discussions are part of an “evaluation of the position of ING Real Estate Investment Management (REIM)” within ING’s banking division, the company said in a statement today. It isn’t certain yet whether the talks will lead to any transactions, ING said, without naming the interested parties. The Financial Times this month said CB Richard Ellis Group Inc. is favored to buy the majority of REIM. ING employs about 830 people in Des Moines.
