Long-term perspective and relationships
In 1856, André Oscar Wallenberg started Sweden's first private bank, becoming the country's first venture capitalist. The bank has been characterized by his innovative thinking and commitment to society ever since. We have accompanied businesses and families out into the world for more than 150 years.
SEB has grown together with the customers. We are different from other Nordic banks in several ways, but mainly through our unique business mix with an emphasis on corporate banking and through deep and long-term relationships with our customers in the Nordic and Baltic countries and Germany.
We are also proud of our history – more than a century and a half of it. This gives us a firm tradition to stand on but has also taught us to be resilient and take a long-term perspective. Above all, it has given us an insight: close relationships with our customers are paramount.
