ABN AMRO

Grip will continue in the ABN AMRO app

It is important to us that you can keep track of your personal financial situation in the best possible way. That's why we're adding the key features of Grip to the ABN AMRO app. This way we can offer all our customers an even easier and faster overview of their income and expenses. For instance - an overview of all subscriptions and recurring expenses and the possibility to easily cancel subscription(s). Or the possibility to look ahead to future expenses in the coming month(s).  

We want to add these features to the ABN AMRO app as soon as possible. Therefore, from 16 December onwards the Grip app will no longer be available to use or download.

 

More insight into your finances in the ABN AMRO app

By the end of this year, we will start integrating the first features into the ABN AMRO app. These are the features 'recurring expenses & subscriptions' and 'future expenses'. By January 2023, these will be available to all ABN AMRO customers using the app. Step by step, we will further expand the ABN AMRO app with the handy Grip functionalities.

We understand that keeping track of your finances is important, especially in these times. Therefore, on our website you will find some tips and free online tools to help you to manage your finances. In addition, as an ABN AMRO customer, you can sign up for a no-obligation appointment with a budget coach.
