In 2008 the Dutch State acquired the ABN AMRO Group N.V. shares, which were transferred to Stichting administratiekantoor beheer financiële instellingen (NL Financial Investments, or NLFI) in 2011. NLFI is planning to gradually reduce its stake over the coming years, with its ultimate aim being to dispose of all of its ABN AMRO Group N.V. shares. In the event of a sale, the shares to be sold will be transferred by NLFI to STAK AAG. STAK AAG will issue depositary receipts for the shares transferred to it. These depositary receipts will be traded on Euronext Amsterdam stock exchange.

STAK AAG will seek to protect the interests of depositary receipt holders and ABN AMRO Group N.V. as effectively as possible, while also taking account of the interests of other stakeholders, such as clients, savers, depositors and ABN AMRO Group N.V. staff, and the interests of society in general.

STAK AAG will do everything possible to counter any threat to the independence, continuity or identity of ABN AMRO Group N.V.

The most important tasks of STAK AAG can be summarised as follows:

The objects, powers, tasks, rights and obligations of STAK AAG are set out in its Articles and the Trust Conditions.
