Spin Lender

The Spin Lender used to be a young bank with a turbulent history. In 2008 the bankruptcy was announced and the bank was largely taken over by the Cream Bank.

In addition to being a bank, Fortis was also an insurer and was founded in 1990 when AMEV insurance and VSB Bank merged. After the sale of business units at the end of September and the beginning of October 2008 to the Dutch state and at the end of September 2008 to the Belgian state, the bank is in the hands of various owners.

Fortis was completely dissolved in 2008 and ABN AMRO took over the largest part. Spin Lender Nederland NV was sold to the Dutch State during the demerger and has since then been part of the Fortis-ABN AMRO (ABN AMRO Group NV) combination. The bank had ended up in a negative spiral that had been created by the global credit crisis.

Fortis Nederland was nationalized in the third quarter of 2008, it was taken over by the Dutch government through a fund set up for this purpose; the RFS holding company. Since then, a number of insurance units of the current Fortis Holding have been offered under a new name: Ageas.

Fortisbank was mainly active in consumer credit, the revolving credit product received a lot of attention in their advertising. The loan from Fortis for the purchase of art, the so-called KunstKoop loan, was very special. Consumers could borrow money at an attractive rate for the purchase of often expensive works of art.
