Total collateral obtained during the reporting period




Collateral obtained is made available for sale in an orderly fashion or through public auctions, with the proceeds used to repay or reduce outstanding indebtedness. Generally we do not occupy obtained properties for our business use.

The commercial real estate collateral obtained in 2010 related to two of our U.S. exposures while the residential real estate collateral obtained related predominately to a number of cases in Spain and also a few cases in the U.S. where we have executed foreclosure by taking possession.

The residential real estate collateral obtained, as shown in the table above, excludes collateral recorded as a result of consolidating securitization trusts under SIC-12 and IAS 27. The year-end amounts in relation to collateral obtained for these trusts were € 25 million and € 33 million, for December 31, 2010 and December 31, 2009, respectively.
