BayernLB is a public bank established in the capital of Germany (Munich). It is part of Sparkassenverband Bayern and the federated state of Bavaria. It offers financial and insurance services to clients and public and private companies. It provides loans, currency management, leasing, and more.


The history of this bank dates back to 1884 when the Bayerische Landeskulturrentenanstalt was created and was renamed Bayerische Landesbodenkreditanstalt in 1949. In 1914, Bayerische Gemeindebank was founded through the union of several savings banks. Years later, in 1972, those two banking institutions merged to form Bayerische Landesbank Girozentrale. From that moment, the bank functioned as the central institution of the Bavarian savings banks and as the leading banker of the Free State of Bavaria.

Years later, Bayerische Landesbank began to expand nationally and internationally to gain a more significant presence. It established national branches in Nuremberg, Stuttgart, Frankfurt, Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Berlin, Leipzig, and obviously, Munich. International offices were established in England, Italy, France, the United States, Russia, and part of Asia.

In 2005, it acquired the name of BayernLB. Two years later, it had a presence in Austria when it bought the Hypo Alpe-Adria-Bank International. In 2018, BayernLB was distributed, 25% in the Bavarian Savings Bank Association, and the rest (75%) in the Bavarian Free State.
