Northern Bank began in 1809 as a Belfast based banking company known as the Northern Banking Partnership. From the very beginning Northern catered for the business market and expanded services in line with its needs.
Northern Bank has evolved over the years meeting the changing needs of customers.
In 2005 the Danish-based Danske Bank Group acquired the bank and has invested approximately £100m in Northern Bank. We now have a leading edge technology platform which allows us to offer some of the most innovative and competitive products and banking services in the market.The Danske Bank Group
Danske Bank is the largest bank in Denmark and is a leading player in the Scandinavian financial markets. The bank was initially established in 1871 as Den Danske Landmandsbank. By 1910 it was the largest bank in Scandinavia. The bank, which was primarily seen as the farmers' bank continued to grow and expand its branch network over the years. As a result of this growth and its changing customer base, the bank changed its name to Den Danske Bank in 1976. In 2000 it was renamed Danske Bank.
