Jyske Bank

It is among the largest and most important banks in Denmark. It provides financial and banking services, insurance, loans, asset management, mortgages, and more to its clients inside and outside the country.


The origin of this bank dates back to 1967 thanks to the merger of 4 major banks at that time, such as Kjellerup Bank, Handels- & Landbrugsbanken i Silkeborg, Silkeborg Bank, and Kjellerup Handels- & Landbrugsbank. A year later, the Banken for Brædstrup og Omegn negotiated with Jyske Bank to join it.

Its idea of ​​expansion was to join with many institutions to consolidate and open branches nationally and internationally. Years later, it continued to merge, this time with Samsø Bank. Then Odder Landbobank joined in 1971, although previously they had problems to merge.

It established branches in Copenhagen, Aarhus, and Randers. The bank had the objective of opening offices nationwide, so it decided to join Finansbanken to make it effective. In 1982, it was the pioneer bank in providing banking services by mail to people who lived in areas where there was no branch. The entity continued to grow with the acquisition of Vendelbobanken. In this way, it obtained a higher number of branches.

In the 1990s, Totalkredit was established, which was a mortgage lending institution. For the past few years, it has continued to join with other institutions such as Holstebro Bank, Fjordbank Mors (only part of the company), Sparekassen Lolland, and BRFkredit.
