Commenting on his association with ING Vysya Bank, Kumble said, “Having grown up at Bangalore, I am aware of the standing and reputation of ING Vysya Bank, and am excited to be associated with it as it takes its business to greater heights.”

ING Vysya Bank is into retail, private and wholesale banking platforms. ING is a global financial institution of Dutch origin offering banking, insurance and asset management to over 75 million private, corporate and institutional clients in more than 50 countries.
