A man operates a smart phone outside a SNS bank Amsterdam, Netherlands, Monday Jan. 28, 2013. SNS Reaal NV, the troubled Dutch banking and insurance group, is looking to strengthen its capital reserves through strategies including a possible share issue. SNS, which has assets worth Euros 134 billion as of the end of June 2012, has been profitable in recent quarters.
