Outlook We will pursue loan growth with an average yearly percentage increase in the mid-single digit area. Impairment losses on financial assets (risk costs) in 2018 are expected to be below the 2017 level. We anticipate that the NPL ratio will further reduce in the medium term. We aim to achieve a cost/income ratio of below 55 per cent in the medium term. In the coming years we target a consolidated return on equity of approximately 11 per cent. We target a CET1 ratio (fully loaded) of around 13 per cent post dividend in the medium term. Based on this target, we intend to distribute between 20 and 50 per cent (dividend payout ratio) of the consolidated profit.

The sale of the core banking operations in Poland is not reflected in the targets in this outlook.
