There is a catch, of course: The Dutch newspaper Financieele Dagblad reports that ABN is willing to discuss an extra capital payout, but not a split-up.

The news comes after Dutch pension fund PGGM expressed its concerns about ABN’s performance, a spokesman Dutch news agency ANP, “like TCI, we are worried about ABN Amro’s strategy.”
