ING Group exits Kotak Mahindra Bank, sells 1.2% stake for around Rs 2,800 crore

New Delhi: Private sector lender Kotak Mahindra Bank Friday said that ING Group has exited as an investor by selling its entire stake in the bank.

ING Group had around 1.20 percent stake in Kotak Mahindra Bank.

It is estimated that the stake would have fetched Rs 2,800 crore to the global financial institution of Dutch origin.

Following the sale of the stake, Mark Newman, a non-executive director of the bank has resigned from the board. Newman was nominee director of ING Group.
