In the Netherlands, we have seen time and again that strong brands retain more of their value during tough economic times and recover more quickly when market conditions begin to improve. This was the case during the banking crisis of 2013 and shows every indication of holding true today.
Amidst unprecedented macro-economic challenges, Shell is the Netherlands’ number one most valuable brand for the third year.
