About this Report Chairman's Foreword Corporate Management Report Appendices Governance Consolidated Financial Company Financial Statements Statements Scope and Boundaries The 2018 Rabobank Annual Report relates to the reporting period January 1, 2018 to December 31, 2018 and was published on March 14,2019 on Rabobank's corporate website.

The 2018 Rabobank Annual Report aims to provide a complete, concise and accurate view of our performance. The report indicates explicitly whether reporting is limited to a selection of the group divisions within or outside of the Netherlands, or if a less comprehensive view is being presented. Materiality Determining the topics for this year's report began with an analysis of the material themes identified in 2017. We defined a list of 18 topics on the basis of this evaluation. A materiality matrix was used to determine the relevance of topics for both Rabobank and our stakeholders. As such, the impact of each topic on Rabobank was determined based on Rabobank's strategic documents and validated by the Managing Board. The impact of each topic on stakeholders was validated by a thorough process of desk research and a big data analysis. The Materiality Connection Table provides insight into how the most relevant material topics connects to the four strategic cornerstones. It also includes references to the chapter describing the management approach and performance per topic. Annual Report 2018 - Appendices 74
