implementing measures in the Netherlands for the purposes of giving information

The Notes will be issued on a continuing basis to one or more of the Dealers specified

or not the Notes are to be listed and, if so, on which
stock exchanges.
Governing Law:
The Notes will be governed by, and construed in
accordance with, the laws of The Netherlands.
Risk Factors:
There are certain factors that may affect the Issuer's
ability to fulfil its obligations under Notes issued
under the Programme. These are set out under 'Risk
Factors' below and include the fact that the Issuer's
results can be adversely affected by (i) competition,
(ii) general market conditions, (iii) regulatory changes
and (iv) standard mortgage-banking risks including
interest rate volatility, counterparty risk and
operational risk. In addition, there are certain factors
which are material for the purpose of assessing the
market risks associated with Notes issued under the
Programme - see 'Risk Factors' below.
Selling Restrictions:
There are selling restrictions in relation to the United
States, the European Economic Area, the United
Kingdom and Japan, and such other restrictions as
may be required in connection with the offering and
sale of a particular Tranche of Notes. See
'Subscription and Sale' below.

RISK FACTORS
The Issuer believes that the following factors may affect its ability to fulfil its
obligations under Notes issued under the Programme. Most of these factors are
contingencies which may or may not occur and the Issuer is not in a position to
express a view on the likelihood of any such contingency occurring. In addition,
factors which are material for the purpose of assessing the market risks associated
with Notes issued under the Programme are also described below.
The order in which the risk factors and uncertainties are presented is not intended to
be an indication of their probability of occurrence or the magnitude of their potential
effect if they should materialise. Additional risks and uncertainties not presently
known to the Issuer or that it currently deems immaterial may also have a material
adverse effect on its business, results of operations or financial condition and could
negatively affect the value of the Notes.
The Issuer believes that the factors described below represent the principal risks
inherent in investing in Notes issued under the Programme, but the inability of the
Issuer to pay interest, principal or other amounts on or in connection with any Notes
may occur for other reasons. Prospective investors should also read the detailed
information set out elsewhere in this Prospectus and reach their own views prior to
making any investment decision.
Before making an investment decision with respect to any Notes, prospective
investors should consult their own stockbroker, bank manager, lawyer, accountant or
other financial, legal and tax advisers and carefully review the risks entailed by an
investment in the Notes and consider such an investment decision in the light of the
prospective investor's personal circumstances.

RISK FACTORS REGARDING THE ISSUER
The Issuer faces substantial competitive pressures which could adversely affect
the Issuer's results of operations
There is substantial competition in The Netherlands for the issue of mortgage loans to
private individuals and the other products and services that the Issuer provides.
Competition in the financial services industry is furthered by the high level of
consolidation in The Netherlands in the markets where the Issuer operates.
Consolidation may create additional or stronger competitors and may intensify
competition. The Issuer faces competition from companies such as SNS Bank N.V.
and other financial institutions. If the Issuer is unable to offer competing attractive
products and service that are profitable or is unable to innovate and provide new and
competitively priced products and services to remain competitive, the Issuer may lose
market share or incur losses on some or all of its activities. Consumer demand,
technological changes, regulatory actions and other factors also affect competition.
Competitive pressures could result in increased pricing pressures, particularly as
competitors seek to win market share, and may harm the Issuer's ability to maintain or
increase profitability.


9


Market conditions can adversely affect the results of the Issuer
The Issuer's business segment is affected by market conditions, which can cause
results to fluctuate from year to year as well as on a long-term basis. These market
conditions include, without limitation, fluctuations in interest rates, monetary policy,
consumer and business spending and demographics.
Mortgage loans constitute a significant portion of the Issuer's total loan portfolio. As
per 30 June 2006, mortgage loans accounted for 94 per cent1. of the Issuer's assets. A
significant downturn in the economy, especially if combined with a drop in property
values and increased interest rates, could lead to a decrease in mortgage loans,
increased default rates on these loans and may even have an adverse effect on the
Bank's financial condition and/or results of operations.
Volatility in interest rates may negatively affect the Issuer's financial position or
result from operations from its banking business
The results of the mortgage-banking operations of the Issuer are affected by its
management of interest rates sensitivity. The composition of the Issuer's assets and
liabilities, and any gap position resulting from that composition, causes the mortgage-
banking operations' net interest income to vary with changes in interest rates. There
can be no assurance that the Issuer will be able to successfully manage interest rate
spreads or the potential negative impact of risks associated with sustained low interest
rate changes. A mismatch of interest-earning assets and interest bearing liabilities in
any given period may, in the event of changes in interest rates, have a material effect
on the financial position or result from operations of the mortgage-banking business
of the Issuer.
While the Issuer manages its operational risks, these risks remain an inherent
part of all of the Issuer's businesses
The operational risks that the Issuer faces include the possibility of inadequate or
failed internal or external processes or systems, human error, regulatory breaches,
employee misconduct or external events such as fraud and changes in the regulatory
framework. These events may result in financial loss and may harm the Issuer's
reputation. Additionally, the loss of key personnel or inability to attract and retain
staff could adversely affect the Issuer's operations and results.
The Issuer attempts to keep operational risks at appropriate levels by maintaining a
well controlled environment in light of the characteristics of its business, the markets
and the regulatory environments in which it operates. While these control measures
mitigate operational risks they may not be fully effective and cannot eliminate them
completely.
The Issuer has counterparty risk exposure
The Issuer is subject to general credit risks, including credit risk of borrowers. Third
parties that owe the Issuer money, securities or other assets may not pay or perform
under their obligations. These parties include borrowers under loans granted, trading
counterparties, counterparties under swaps and credit and other derivative contracts,
agents and other financial intermediaries. These parties may default on their
