1 Strong operating performance driven by strict cost control Second quarter results August 2002

2 0 2 Strong operating performance driven by strict cost control First half 2002 performance:  Revenues flat (+0.4%)  Operating expenses are trending down (-2.1%)  Operating result up (6.9%)  Provisioning was driven up by an unprecedented level of corporate defaults due to perceived fraudulent practices  Efficiency ratio improved by 1.8% to 71.0%  Tier 1 ratio up to 7.15%, a 0.6% increase compared to the first half 2001

3 0 3 Restructuring decisions have begun to pay off in first half of 2002  Overall revenues down in the first half of 2002, with more stable flow revenues mitigating the downturn in volatile businesses  Cost base reflects the positive impact of the restructuring decisions, particularly TOPS and US domestic closures  Expenses have come down sharply and we expect it to fall by an additional 5% in the second half of 2002  Aggressive capital management has remained a key theme. Target of RWA reduction of EUR 20 bn will be achieved by year end. A further EUR 10 bn reduction is targeted by 2004

4 0 4 WCS will continue to sharpen its strategic focus  Client-led, integrated wholesale bank with a European focus  Focus on profitable Financial Institutions and Large Cap Clients  Grow our strong Global Financial Markets and Loan Product businesses through integrated delivery of value-added Debt and Treasury products  Position our strong Global Transaction Services franchise for growth through delivery of an integrated suite of Working Capital products  Reposition our Corporate Finance and Equities businesses to deliver positive operating results by focusing on our positions of strength

5 0 5 Focus Equities and Corporate Finance on positions of strength  Cost base of Corporate Finance and Equities has been reduced by over 30% since Q  Further reductions coming in the second half of 2002 from both our US restructuring and actions announced today  A 400 to 500 headcount reduction will be implemented without additional restructuring charge  Equities and Corporate Finance will focus on existing positions of strength  Committed to profitability in 2003 without relying on market recovery

6 Operating performance

7 0 7 Operating performance of the second quarter was good  Revenues held up remarkably well despite the weak economy  Expenses have continued to come down, driven by WCS and BU US  Efficiency ratio has further improved Revenues Q2 2002

8 0 8 Good performance in C&CC was driven by all franchises  Revenues stable  Expenses higher due to incidentals in BU NL  Strong performance despite adverse currency movements Operating result Q2 2002

9 0 9 BU NL restructuring is on track  Revenues increased due to higher net interest revenue  Expenses up due to incidentals but staff costs trending down  Conversion of the branch network is on track. Target of EUR 400 mln annual cost savings as of 2004 is maintained Revenues Q2 2002

10 0 10 BU US posted another quarter of growth and improved efficiency  Revenues went up by 7.1% in local currency: mortgage origination stabilised, value of mortgage servicing rights increased  Expenses came down due to strict cost control and lower mortgage related expenses Revenues Q2 2002

11 0 11 Strong performance in BU Brazil despite market volatility  Revenues were up 1.4% in local currency  In local currency, expenses were up 10.1% driven by higher staff costs and automation costs related to the opening of new branches  Effective tax rate is an integral part of the BU operating efficiency.  Net profit increased by 68.2% to EUR 143 mln Revenues Q2 2002

12 0 12 PC and AM were affected by difficult market conditions  PC commissions and asset values were down, particularly in France and International Private Banking. Operating performance was affected by higher expenses, in part due to further investments in the Dutch franchise  Resilient AM revenues despite the significant reduction in the value of AuM and associated revenues, in line with market conditions. Costs were contained enabling AM to deliver a satisfactory operating performance Revenues Q2 2002

13 0 13 WCS improved its operating performance despite weak markets  Modest decline in revenues due in part to stable flow business  Expenses sharply down, driven by TOPS, strict cost control and the closure of US Equity & Corporate Finance domestic business  Operating result and efficiency ratio improved significantly Revenues Q2 2002

15 0 15 Unprecedented level of corporate failures drove provisioning up  Provisioning rose sharply due to an unprecedented level of corporate failures triggered by perceived fraudulent practices  Decrease expected in HY02, barring any force majeure  Slightly higher level for the year assumed due to Q2 levels  Quality of the portfolio remains satisfactory Annualised provisions / RWA (%)

16 0 16 Tier 1 has improved despite Brazil  Adverse currency movements have impacted Tier 1 solvency  The impact of Brazil was 19 basis points in the second quarter  The capital release from RWA reduction in WCS has improved Tier 1 ratio (EUR bn) / % change / Total assets Shareholders’ equity Group capital Risk-weighted assets Tier 1 ratio Total capital ratio % 10.80% % 10.91% 1.7 (6.5) (7.9) (8.4) (1.2) (4.5) (9.8) (12.4)

17 Outlook

18 0 18 Outlook unchanged  Given the level of corporate failures in the second quarter, we have assumed a slightly higher level of provisioning for the year  We expect net profit, excluding extraordinary items, to be in line with 2001  Interim dividend stable at EUR 0.45 per ordinary share

19 Appendices Second quarter 2002 results

20 0 20 Pensions  Accounting policy migrated to US GAAP on 1 January US GAAP allows the spreading of potential increases of the annual pension costs  Accrued benefit cost is fully accounted for in the liabilities under provisions  Annual pension costs would have to increase as and when unrecognised net actuarial gains / (losses) are greater than 10% of the Projected Benefit Obligation  Any increase would be spread over the average remaining service term - 11 years at present
