The company headquarters in Hannover, Braunschweig and Magdeburg reflect the bank's roots in its owner states Lower Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt.

NORD/LB can look back on a centuries-old tradition. In 1970, Norddeutsche Landesbank Girozentrale emerged from the merger of the four predecessor institutions Braunschweigische Staatsbank (founded in 1765), Hannoversche Landeskreditanstalt (founded in 1840), Niedersächsische Landesbank Girozentrale (founded in 1917) and Niedersächsische Wohnungskreditanstalt Stadtschaft (founded in 1918).

// Because climate change demands action, not words.

NORD/LB has been one of the leading financiers of renewable energies for more than 30 years. Whether wind, solar or hydrogen: we have the power to implement projects. For a safe future.

As a commercial bank, we offer our corporate and institutional customers as well as public-sector customers a targeted range of financial services. We are also active in the private customer business via Braunschweigische Landessparkasse (an "institution within the institution", AidA). Globally, we are represented at all major trading locations such as London, New York and Singapore through offices and agencies.

Our goal is to support German customers in their international business and thereby focus on an international niche business – in addition to the special consideration of the region.

NORD/LB operates as the state bank for Lower Saxony and Sachsen-Anhalt and assumes the tasks of a central savings bank in the federal states of Lower Saxony (39 savings banks), Saxony-Anhalt (12 savings banks) and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania (8 savings banks). Through the Braunschweigische Landessparkasse (BLSK), the NORD/LB Group has 88 locations in the Braunschweig region.

As a central savings bank, we are partners of the savings banks in Lower Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.
Beyond the three federal states mentioned above, we act as a service provider for individual savings banks. In our role as a clearing centre, we also offer all services that are relevant for the savings banks we serve.

The bank's activities further include promotional business.
The Landesförderinstitut Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania State Development Institute), which belongs to the NORD/LB Group, advises the respective state government. The promotional bank is also contact for promotional issues in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. The institute offers its customers consultancy services relating to promotion and assists them in submitting applications for funding programmes.
