IFRS Specialist


At a glance

The financial markets are constantly changing, and with it the expectations and information needs of market participants. As a bank, ABN AMRO is faced with a multitude of requirements that have different origins, but one thing in common, they must be implemented and complied with. One of ABN AMRO’s three strategic pillars is to ‘build a future-proof bank’. Finance is key to this strategic pillar, ABN AMRO can only be future-proof if its financial and sustainability reporting meets the expectations and information needs of its stakeholders.
