Rabobank has said it is looking into the possibility of selling its ACC Loan Management portfolio next year. 

The loan portfolio is effectively the only remaining activity of ACC, which was taken over by Rabobank - the Netherlands' biggest mortgage lender - in 2002.

ACC Bank handed back its licence to the Central Bank in 2014.  

In a statement, Rabobank said that in advance of any potential future portfolio sale, ACCLM is transferring the ownership of the portfolio to its parent, Coöperatieve Rabobank, from the middle of December. 

The ACC loan book is currently managed by Asset Services, formerly Capita Asset Services.

Rabobank said that Asset Services will continue its role as outsourced service provider, and so, after the transfer, customers should see no change in how their loans are managed.
