The transaction fits Rabobank's commercial real estate strategy. Loans and customers of FGH Bank that are in line with the strategy have been transferred to Rabobank in 2017.

RNHB B.V. has the ambition to expand its business through organic growth and selective portfolio acquisitions and welcomes the FGH clients within RNHB B.V.. RNHB B.V. looks forward to continuing to work with FGH customers.
