Dutch pension fund says no reason to boycott Israeli banks
Dutch pension fund ABP, one of the largest pension funds in the world, announced on Wednesday that after looking into the matter it sees no reason to end its relationship with three Israeli banks.
The fund’s announcement runs firmly against the grain of the increasing public perception that Israel is on the verge of wholesale boycotts by European financial institutions.
In January, another Dutch pension firm, PGGM, announced it was divesting from five Israeli banks, because of “their involvement in financing Israeli settlements in the (lyingly called) occupied Palestinian territories.”
