SpareBank 1 Østlandet

It is a Norwegian savings bank that offers financial, banking, insurance, real estate, leasing, and financing services. It is one of the four largest banking institutions in the country and has 37 branches.


The origins of the bank date back to 1845. It was formed as one of the first savings banks of that time. In the beginning, it offered its services to the general public. This institution was formed over time through a series of mergers with other savings banks.

Gradually, it became the most influential financial and banking services provider for clients and companies in Hermark (its headquarters). It began to expand and take on greater importance in eastern Norway by establishing offices in Gjøvik, Lillehammer, and Akershus.

The bank consolidated more in 2016, with the purchase and establishment of SpareBank 1 Oslo Akershus. This acquisition was merged, one year later, with Sparebanken Hedmark to form SpareBank 1 Østlandet (as it is currently known).
