Antwerp Diamond Bank (ADB) was a small bank, serving exclusively diamond and diamond jewelry sector. The bank was operating as a subsidiary of KBC Bank NV. During financial crisis 2008-2009, KBC Bank received governmental support and made a commitment to divest from several of its subsidiaries including ADB. Because the sale of ADB could not be successfully completed, KBC Bank NV announced on September 19, 2014 the decision to run down the credit portfolio and banking activities of Antwerp Diamond Bank in a gradual and orderly manner. On July 1, 2015 ADB was absorbed into KBC Bank NV: the banking relationships with ADB have been transferred by operation of law to KBC Bank NV. Over time the activities and credit portfolio of ADB will be removed entirely from KBC's scope.
