Danske Bank Group is a Nordic universal bank and one of the leading financial enterprises in northern Europe. We are headquartered in Denmark and operate in 15 countries, offering a full range of banking services in the international financial markets.

Besides the banking activities, which all operate under the Danske Bank brand name, we offer services in the fields of life insurance and pensions (Danica Pension), mortgage finance (Realkredit Danmark), asset management (Danske Capital), real estate (home), and leasing (Nordania Leasing).

The Group’s banking activities are organised in three business units – Personal Banking, Business Banking and Corporates & Institutions – that span all of the Group’s geographical markets. We have a market-leading position in Denmark; we are one of the largest banks in Northern Ireland and Finland; and we have challenger positions in Sweden and Norway. We are present in Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia.

Our vision is to become the most trusted financial partner, and we are driven by an ambition to always create long-term value for all our stakeholders.
