Facing Chorus Of Criticism, ABN May Bargain With Hedge Fund

Mar 1 2007 | 10:59am ET

With public criticism of its performance increasing, ABN Amro is apparently ready to sit down with The Children’s Investment Fund, the British hedge fund pushing to break up the Dutch banking giant.

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.”
