I-Bankers Take ING U.S. Another Step Closer to Freedom

Reported by Neil Anderson, Managing Editor

The ING [profile] mutual fund business in the U.S. just took another step towards independence from its Dutch multinational parent.

Yesterday ING U.S. revealed that its IPO underwriters — led by Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs and Citigroup, and also including Merrill Lynch, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank and J.P. Morgan — exercised their option to buy an extra 9.8 million shares (or 4 percent of ING U.S.) at the IPO price of $19.50 per share. The deal reduces ING Group's stake in ING U.S. to 71 percent.

ING U.S. IPOed on May 2, with ING Group selling 65.2 million ING U.S. shares at $19.50 under the ticker VOYA. That ticker aligns with ING U.S.'s upcoming rebranding effort.
