AMSTERDAM — Dutch financial services company ING Group NV considers an initial public offering of its insurance business as the most interesting option for now, chief executive Jan Hommen said Wednesday.

"In the current situation, we see the public market as the most interesting option. But I can't assure that we will also go for this option," Hommen told reporters on a conference call. He added that a possible flotation of the insurance business will depend on future market circumstances.
