We are...

... the Bank for entrepreneurs. We are where our clients need us. Of course, that is our home region of Northern Germany, but it extends far beyond: in the west, in the east, in the south and in the centre of the Federal Republic we have offices that ensure direct contact with our clients. At selected locations we also operate outside Germany. But no matter where we are: we not only offer tailored financing solutions for traditional SMEs but also command a leading role in commercial real estate financing in Germany. We are in the premier league when it comes to assisting renewable energy projects in Europe, and infrastructure projects also play an important role for us. And it goes without saying that we retain our links to shipping. But our focus is shifting increasingly to the maritime growth markets of Greece and Asia – where our colleagues are, of course, also on the ground.
