15 Strategy and earnings drivers Foto gebouw 2

16 16 Start of a new decade In Q1 2005, KBC merged with parent company Almanij:  ‘Quick wins’ for shareholders included: The re-rating of the KBC share due to increased transparency, visibility and share liquidity (analysts previously used a 10-15% discount) Operational synergies, particularly in the field of wealth management (programme of 75 m recurring pre-tax result, of which ½ as from 2006)  Further value-creating potential includes: Shifting the earnings trend in the private banking area ‘into much higher gear’ (earnings growth to be doubled from 5% to at least 10% CAGR) Moreover, KBC continues to be ambitious, maintaining its performance commitments in both Belgium and CEE

17 17 We build a solid future Strategy headlines include: Retail- and wealth-management-oriented, with focus on Belgium and CEE-5 and selected Western European markets Further enhancement of efficiency (with emphasis on - but not exclusively in - CEE and European private banking) Standalone basis (opportunistic operational alliances in certain areas to generate economies of scale, if needed) Steady dividend growth and solid level of financial strength/solvency The solid ‘growth and value’ outlook is reflected in ambitious financial targets, valid until 2008: Efficiency:Cost/income, banking Combined ratio, non-life max. 58% max. 95% Financial strength:Tier-1, banking Solvency margin, insurance min. 8% min. 200% Value creation:Adjusted ROE EPS growth (CAGR) min. 16% min. 10%

18 18 Do not underestimate the market: KBC Group is well positioned: Consolidated banking market (80% of assets held by top-4 players) Savings ratio amongst highest in the world (every year, ca. 15% of GDP flows into fin. assets) Market highly receptive to cross-selling of AM & insurance, fueling strong growth trend in AM and life insurance business Strong mortgage growth trend (ca. 10% per year) expected to continue, as residential property price levels are still below other European markets Fee rates for retail banking services only 50% of European average (gradual increase expected) Credit quality has proven to be solid over the cycle Top-3 market position, esp. strong in Northern region (one of the wealthiest regions in the EU) Of the top players, level of customer satisfaction is highest Innovative product offering in retail AM (steadily increasing market share over the past 10 yrs.) Still high cross-selling potential for non-life products and well-performing bancassurance distribution model Further cost efficiency improvement potential, among other things, via co-sourcing of back offices with other banks Well-diversified revenue structure (50% fee income) and further increase in fee income targeted Earnings drivers in Belgium - overview

19 19 Strong market growth momentum: KBC Group is well positioned: Earning drivers in CEE - overview  Nom. GDP growth in 2005/06 at 6.3%. Although prospects have been revised due to global economic slowdown, growth will still outgrow EMU by 3.1%  Ongoing catch-up in product penetration (currently, an avg. of 45% for banking accounts and 5% for mortgages)  Mortgage volumes growing at double-digit pace (up 51% on avg. in 2004)  Financial sector could grow five-fold if financial assets to GDP were to reach current levels of S. Europe  Solid market position in retail and corporate businesses (excl. banking in Poland) with nationwide branch networks  Competitive advantage in enhancing cross-selling of asset management and insurance products  Well positioned in HNWI and private banking through epb know-how C/I still on the high side overall, inducing further improvement, e.g., by setting up cross-border platforms for processing transactions Adequately provisioned balance sheet (risks under control)  Availability of capital within the Group

22 22 Growth in AM fueling CEE earnings KBC is well positioned: Strong appetite for ‘risk-free’ investments in the market (money-market, capital-guaranteed funds), fully in line with KBC’s core competencies and successful track record in Belgium Cost/AUM below average (around 16 bps vs. 20 bps for Europe) = competitive advantage relative to other CEE players Results are encouraging: AUM grew in ’04 by 25%. Continued high growth expected in coming years (CAGR of 15-20% in mutual funds and 10-15% in pension products) Via the funds business, new customers are recruited.

25 25 Private banking in higher gear Dual brand strategy: network-led vs. ‘independent boutique’ Growth drivers: network trade-up, extension of product offer and hiring of private bankers Core business: an integrated private banking business in selected European markets focusing on clients with >€1m of investable assets Integrated network of local pure-play private banking brands (boutique style) Priority of reducing costs by creating synergies in a central ‘hub’ (IT, operations, support) Growth drivers: increased share of wallet, hiring of PB managers and opportunistic M&A Low-growth market Focus on profitability (leveraging the hub) If possible, steer repatriated assets to KBC onshore No expansion, except in IFAs with short payback Small today (2 bn AUM), but high market growth expected (>15% p.a.) Strengthening a network-led model, leveraging Belgian experience BelgiumW. Europe onshoreW. Europe offshoreCEE Opportunistic acquisitions may imply investments of m per year

26 26 Shift in customer preference towards greater sophistication: open architecture, alternative investments, financial planning, accessibility and Internet delivery However, the core needs of customers will remain the same (trusted personal relationships, status/exclusivity, investment performance) Strong relationship-based approach, open architecture concept, KBC AM’s sound product expertise and solid capability for tailor-made solutions Greatly improved efficiency (implementation of large scale rationalization programme), to be further boosted by the realization of merger synergies within the enlarged KBC Group Leveraging the network in Belgium Local private banking brands with status/heritage in Germany, Spain, Netherlands, UK and Belgium ‘Unique’ model attracting experienced private bankers from big banks Changing market environment: KBC Group is well positioned: Private banking in higher gear

36 36 Solid revenue trend IFRS reclassfications distort comparison with 2004 (among other things, non-recognition of unit-linked insurance premiums) Q1’s solid trends continued in Q2: NII: volume growth almost offsetting q/q NIM contraction High level of life insurance premium income (1.2 bn - mostly unit-linked, in line with stock market performance) Strong commission line (410 m) Down 693 m y/y, mainly due to non-recognition of 1.1 bn new unit-linked premium volume under IFRS 2005 Apart from one-offs (136 m in Q1), solid revenue ‘quality’: NII: volume growth almost offsetting negative impact on NIM from flattening yield curve (-13 bps) High level of life insurance premium income (2 bn) Strong commission line (+23%)

40 40 Competitive landscape in Belgium In 1H 05, NIM was stable y/y at 2.0 %. In Q4 04 and Q1 05 the (obviously lagging) effect of the flattening of the yield curve was offset by the improved product mix (shift to low-yielding liquid savings deposits in anticipation of an interest rate hike). In Q2 05, customers switched to long-term investments, anticipating deposit rate cuts (-25 bps as of Q3 03). Volume growth (deposits/loans) was strong in Belgium, further boosting NII Since mid-2004, credit spreads have seen a significant deterioriation as a result of increased price competition. Currently, pricing rationality is tending to be restored. Net Interest Margin, KBC Bank, Belgium Spreads on new mortgages (bps), KBC, Belgium

41 41 Competitive landscape in Belgium Change in retail market share since the beginning of 2004 (avg. deposits and loans), proxy Source: Febelfin (market sample) Includes consumer loans, mortgages, saving accounts and saving certificates In 2004, the large banks, representing >80% of the market, lost roughly 1% market share to the benefit of smaller players. But from 1H05, this trend seems to be on the wane. KBC has been able to keep its market share stable (and may have further increased its market share in unit- linked insurance and probably mutual funds).

42 42 Sustained favourable y/y cost trend Ytd expenses down 3%, mainly driven by (a) cost cutting in Belgium and (b) lower staff profit-sharing bonuses (esp. at KBC Financial Producs) Cost/income, banking, down from 61% to 57% As expected, cost level up q/q due to: Elimination in Q2 of underusage of IT and marketing budgets of ca. 20m in Q1 (time lag) Higher income-related staff costs (  27 m esp. at KBC Financial Products) Restructuring costs (20 m) and one-off merger-related costs (20 m) Y/y trend: Q2 04 includes write-back (73 m) of provision for operating charges (after legal settlement) -3%
