Sydbank is a na­tion­wide, full-service corporate and advisory bank building on re­la­tion­ships between people. We find solutions where they are – quickly and ef­fi­ciently. This is the basis of the day-to-day work at Sydbank, which has grown through mergers and ac­qui­si­tions into one of Denmark’s largest banks.

Sydbank has a solid financial foun­da­tion that offers room for more business with new customers as well as existing customers. Our growth will be built on a firm and sound footing. Sydbank wishes to remain a bank operating on its own terms and we aim to be the preferred business partner. We focus on our own products but use business partners for a wide variety of financial services, for instance mortgage credit, pensions, and insurance.

As an advisory and service un­der­tak­ing Sydbank’s primary objective is to meet the financial re­quire­men­ts of its customers. Sydbank achieves this objective by striving to be among the absolute top per­formers in Denmark in terms of operating a bank and providing advisory services to customers based on their unique situation.

Our bank

Rooted in Southern Jutland, Sydbank is a strong and in­de­pen­dent na­tion­wide bank operating on its own terms. For the backbone

of the Danish corporate sector and for retail clients who value pro­fes­sion­al advice we are a bank for most people but not the same bank for everyone. Good old-fashioned at­ten­tive­ness, new tech­nology – we use what works. We know our customers and

we are close to them providing advice tailored to their in­di­vid­ual needs. Backed by the best business partners our com­pet­i­tive strength is increased.

Our bank – ex­cel­lence and re­la­tion­ships create value.


Our bank makes 3 promises – to our customers, to our employees and to our share­hold­ers. You will know us for the value we create for our customers. You will know us for our belief that excellent and committed employees are our most important asset. And you will know us for always having a level of prof­itabil­ity that will enable us to remain an in­de­pen­dent and re­source­ful bank.
