ABN Amro is going to use €250m (£196m) of funding from the European Investment Bank (EIB) to provide loans and leases to Dutch businesses.

This is the fourth time that the EIB and ABN AMRO have teamed up. A total of €600m of EIB funding was made available to Dutch businesses through ABN AMRO in the first three EIB tranches.

Ruut Meijer, managing director of commercial clients at ABN Amro said: "Steady growth of the Dutch economy is creating new investment opportunities. This EIB facility offers an additional financing option at favourable conditions, further helping to improve the investment climate in the Netherlands and benefiting our clients."
