NORD/LB - One of the largest banks in Germany
NORD/LB is the leading universal bank in the north of Germany. As the Landesbank of Lower Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt, it supports the public sector in municipal financing and assumes the responsibilities of a central bank for the savings banks in these two states as well as Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.

In 1970, Norddeutsche Landesbank Girozentrale emerged from the merger of four predecessors: Braunschweigische Staatsbank, Hannoversche Landeskreditanstalt, Niedersächsische Landesbank Girozentrale and Niedersächsische Wohnungskreditanstalt Stadtschaft.

NORD/LB earns € 68 million in the first quarter
NORD/LB Norddeutsche Landesbank concluded the first quarter of 2018 with earnings before taxes of € 68 million. After taxes, profit stood at € 43 million. Last year the first-quarter result reflected extraordinary income in the securities business and totalled € 295 million before taxes and € 248 million after taxes. However, the introduction of the new accounting standard IFRS 9 means that there is only limited comparability with the prior-year figures. The common equity tier 1 capital ratio at NORD/LB rose further and stood at 12.8 per cent as at 31 March 2018.
