The likelihood of obtaining dual citizenship in the Netherlands seems to be improving. If you can prove that by renouncing your original nationality you will suffer a substantial financial loss, in some cases you can keep your other passport.
You will need to demonstrate that by renouncing this nationality, you will lose property rights that are worth at least € 8.660,-. Examples of property rights are inheritance rights, pension rights or property rights on real estate.
A client of mine was recently nominated for Dutch citizenship with our King while he can keep his original citizenship and passport. We effectively demonstrated to the IND that he would lose his built up pension rights as soon as he would renounce his original nationality. This convinced the IND to exempt him from the obligation to give up his other nationality.
It would be nice if IND continues to decide along the same lines in similar cases.
