Danske Andelskassers Bank A/S - a new and old organisation
The Danske Andelskassers Bank group is essentially a full service bank with 20 full time branches for private customers, 4 centers for business customers, 350 employees and about 100,000 customers. The Head office is located in Hammershøj (between Randers and Viborg – close to E45) and the bank mainly operates in Jutland and on Funen, where it has firm local roots and strong local commitment, but it has customers throughout Denmark – often as a result of historical links with one of the bank's branches.
The bank's clientele consists primarily of private customers, small and medium-sized business customers and institutional customers, particularly in the form of other banks. Danske Andelskassers Bank sees its primary purpose as being to deliver the solutions that strengthen its customers, so it's main product for private and business customers is competent advice while the main product for institutional customers consists of solutions that enable them to offer their customers the services they want.
Danske Andelskassers Bank was founded in 1969, but is in its present form the result of a conversion in spring 2011 of the SDA group (the Danish Amalgamation of Cooperative Banks, its 16 cooperative banks and Danske Andelskassers Bank A/S, which was owned by the 16 cooperative banks) into a single limited liability company, which was subsequently – on 7 July 2011 – admitted for listing on NASDAQ OMX Copenhagen. The bank is thus owned by 16 foundations, 33,000 private investors and a few institutional investors.

Collaboration, commitment, trust and stability
Collaboration – a value and a working method
One of Danske Andelskassers Bank's fundamental values is collaboration, and this is an important guide for the bank's day-to-day operations.
In addition to collaborating with customers and suppliers, the bank also collaborates with other banks, among others, partly through partnerships in general and partly through supplier agreements under which Danske Andelskassers Bank provides solutions enabling the banks in question to offer products to their customers which would otherwise not have been possible.
Furthermore, Danske Andelskassers Bank monitors the current consolidation in the financial sector and is generally positive about extended collaboration –ultimately mergers – with other banks sharing Danske Andelskassers Bank's business focus and values. Such collaboration must, however, create the greatest possible value for the bank's shareholders and customers, and based on the bank's solvency situation at the end of 2013, the bank does not expect to enter into any mergers in the short term.
In the longer term, Danske Andelskassers Bank wants to be a solid and important player in the Danish financial sector and not least in the local areas in which the bank operates.
The bank is thus interested to participate in the consolidation taking place in the financial sector at the moment. The bank sees itself as the continuing party in such mergers and is aware that this requires a solid financial foundation.
Danske Andelskassers Bank's primary focus is to continuously create a positive development for its customers and the local areas in which it operates through accessible, down-to-earth, dedicated, well-informed and competent advice as well as commitment to these local areas.
