Jyske Bank A/S (OMX|CSE1587|JYSK) is a major Danish bank.

The headquarters are located in Silkeborg, and the Bank has offices, branches, or subsidiaries in Denmark, France, Germany, Gibraltar, The Netherlands, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.

Jyske Bank is number three in Denmark in terms of share of the Danish banking market (approx. 7 %), it is the second-largest bank to be listed on Copenhagen Stock Exchange, and it is the largest bank in Denmark to be headquartered outside Copenhagen.Fact|date=February 2008

Jyske Bank profiles itself on an informal approach to banking, having abandoned the traditional bank counter-interior in 1998 in favour of an open banking environment, where the customer service agents are seated at round tables with 4-8 agents at each.

On 21. September 2006 a further remodelling was launched, this time using visual rhetorics based on retail rather than banking. Each bank branch now featured a cafe, a play corner for the kids and information on products were gathered in themed boxes that can be scanned at info stations for more information on the box content.

The current CEO of Jyske Bank is Anders Dam. The bank employs some 4500 individuals.


Jyske Bank is the result of the merger in 1967 of four banks from the mid-Jutland area: Silkeborg Bank, Kjellerup Bank, Kjellerup Handels- og Landbobank and the Handels- og Landbrugsbank in Silkeborg. These banks trace their roots back to the mid-19th Century.
