History of DSL Bank


Partial privatisation of DSL Bank

Private sector equity holdings are combined in DSL Holding AG. In subsequent years, DSL Bank expands and positions itself as a specialised bank.


Opening up to competition

The bank's foundation act is amended. This paves the way for competition. As a result of this, DSL Bank further extended its lending business.


Creation of Deutsche Siedlungs- und Landesrentenbank Deutsche

Siedlungsbank and Deutsche Landesrentenbank merge.


Deutsche Siedlungsbank established

Its purpose is to finance loans for setting up rural housing estates.


The name changes – the objective remains the same

The regional Rentenbanks are merged with Preussische Landesrentenbank. This becomes Deutsche Landesrentenbank in 1939.


Rentenbanks assist in the liberation of the peasants

The provincial Rentenbanks pay debentures to the lords of the manor to relieve the farmers. These debentures are repaid from annual pension payments of the farmers, and bear interest.
