As from 11 April 2017, SNS introduces SNS Doelbeleggen: a clear-cut investment account with sustainable investments and support tools. This account allows customers to invest independently online in 1 of the 5 sustainable mixed funds of ASN Beleggingsfondsen Beheer. These funds encourage companies and governments to consider humans, animals and the climate. This account also offers a calculation tool, the Doelplanner (goal planner), allowing customers to see what their assets are worth and if they are still on track online at any time. We no longer offer SNS Profiel Beleggen. We will transfer all SNS Profiel Beleggen or SNS Basis Beleggen customers to SNS Doelbeleggen and they will receive a letter informing them about this.
First-time home buyers anticipate more and more difficulties in obtaining a mortgage loan; 70% have doubts whether they will succeed in getting a mortgage, and 30% do not expect to get a mortgage at all. This is evident from recent research carried out by market research agency GfK for de Volksbank. The bank is a long-time advocate of a better saving-borrowing balance to buy a home. The introduction of a form of Bouwsparen is one of the measures that fits in with the further reform of the housing market.
