Amagerbanken is an independent financial institution. It was established in 1903 as a local bank on the island of Amager. Twentyfive years ago we ”crossed the bridge” andopened branches in Copenhagen proper. Amagerbanken has developed into a fullservice regional bank with activities placing the Bank squarely among the large banks in Denmark.
Today, they have 27 branches: 13 on Amager, 11 in Greater Copenhagen, two in Århus and one in Odense. The foundation of the Bank is their 600 employees, 51,000 shareholders and 120,000 customers.
An alternative to the big banks
Amagerbanken is the alternative to the big banks, size being one of their strengths. They are big enough to be at the forefront in terms of products and technology, but not so big as to become impersonal. Amagerbanken’s customers can always be sure of a personal welcome.
With their size and at organisational structure, they can adapt quickly to the changing needs of their customers for individual advice and personal service. Their local decisionmaking competency enables them to decide all major issues promptly for the benefit of their customers.
The best of both worlds
The Bank provides all forms of banking services and is a full-service bank for businesses and private customers. They specialise in customised asset management, custody services, the sale of foreign bank notes and commercial lease arrangements. Their collaboration with the best players in mortgage credit, investment and insurance enables them to offer their customers a broad, flexible and highly competitive range of services that provide their customers with real options. They have an attractive pricing policy providing their retail customers with feefree daily banking services.
Personal contact ranks high on their priority list, and their netbank is not an alternative, but a supplement to their personal advisory services, enabling their customers to enjoy the best of both worlds.
Balancing the interest of stakeholders
They attach importance to traditional shareholder values while respecting the Bank’s other stakeholders. Attainment of their short- and long-term financial goals depends on their ability to balance the interests and expectations of shareholders, customers, employees and society as a whole regarding the Bank’s development. Striking the right balance will be key to prosperous banking business.v
