BRIEF-Fortis CEO: remains difficult to value structured credit portfolio

AMSTERDAM, Oct 14 (Reuters) – Fortis NV Chief Executive Filip Dierckx and other executives say:

* Remains extremely difficult to place value on structured credit portfolio

* Looking into (whether to keep) listings in Brussels and Amsterdam

* Looking at whether can make the group less complex in terms of listings

* ‘All options are open’ on company’s future strategy

* Will not tend to go for fire sales of structured credit portfolio

* Considered shareholder vote on group changes, but there was no time to ask for approval, ‘would have gone under’
