Our history is important – but it is also a natural part of our future. Read more about our history, which dates all the way back to 1820.
Our roots are firmly planted in the history of Sweden’s savings banks, the cooperative agricultural bank tradition and Hansabank’s leading role in the Baltic countries. We serve everyone, from customers with basic needs to those who require advanced banking services. We work to develop close relationships with our about 7.3 million private customers and about 618,000 corporate customers.
As a major bank, we are a significant part of the financial system and play an important role in the local communities we serve. We are dedicated to helping our customers, our shareholders and society as a whole to remain financially sound and sustainable.
By being attuned to the market, we can stay competitive in the long term and create value. We will meet our stakeholders’ expectations and satisfy their financial needs. High cost efficiency is crucial to enable us to continue developing a competitive offering. Swedbank has, and will maintain, a robust balance sheet that can withstand swings in the business cycle.
Evaluating and managing risks is part of what we do every day, and our broad customer base of individuals and companies in many different sectors spreads the risk while generating stable results with little fluctuation. Taken together, this creates value for customers, society, shareholders and employees.
