Payvision's existing management will retain a 25% stake in the business and continue to lead the company, ING said.

Payvision was founded in 2002 and has offices in 10 cities in the U.S., Europe, and Asia, ING said.

ING said the deal is expected to close in the first quarter of 2018 and is not expected to have a material impact on its common equity tier 1 ratio, a key measure of capital strength.
