About ING DIRECT USA

ING DIRECT USA is a branchless direct bank that was founded in 2000 by the ING Group, with its headquarters located in Wilmington, Delaware. ING is a Dutch financial institution with businesses in banking, investments, insurance, and retirement. ING Direct USA was later on sold to Capital One in 2011. During the financial crisis, the European Union ordered ING to sell its business unit in the US as a condition of its government bailout. The agreement will also give ING a seat on Capital One’s board. Capital One Financial Corporation is a US-based bank holding company that specializes in credit cards, home and auto loans, banking, and savings products. Capital One acquired ING DIRECT USA for cash and shares amounting to $9 billion. The acquisition process was completed in February of 2012 and Capital One received permission to include ING into its business in October of 2012. Since November 2012, ING DIRECT USA has been rebranded as Capital One 360. The current products being offered by Capital One 360 are checking, savings, business, home loans, investing, and retirement services.
