History

The bank was founded 5 october 1871 as Den Danske Landmandsbank, Hypothek- og Vexelbank i KjĂžbenhavn (The Danish Farmers' Bank, Mortgage and Exchange Bank of Copenhagen).

Since the mid 1990s it has been expanding its operations into the rest of Scandinavia and Finland.

The reasons for this expansion are rooted in the increasing deregulation and internationalization of the banking sector. In order to survive, the leadership of the group felt that the company had to move beyond Denmark in order to grow.

The company has undergone several mergers:

2005 saw the acquisition of Northern Bank in Northern Ireland and National Irish Bank in the Ireland from the National Australia Bank, growing for the first time outside of Scandinavia.
