Sparekassen Sjælland (Nasdaq CopenhagenSPSJF) is a bank headquartered in Holbæk, Denmark.

History[edit]

Sparekassen Sjælland traces its history back to the foundation of Holbæk Amts Sparekassen on 23 December 1825 at Frydendal Manor. The estate's owner, Jacob Frederik van Deurs, was the first chairman of the board. He was succeeded by Chr. v. Barner from Kalundborg Slots Ladegård in 1829.[1] The current bank is the result of a series of mergers between local saving banks on Zealand and the bank has formerly operated under names such as Sparekassen Holbæk, Sparekassen for Holbæk og Omegn, Sparekassen Nordvestsjælland and Sparekassen Vestsjælland. The current name was introduced in 2001. In 2010, Sparekassen Sjælland merged with Næstved-based Max Bank. Sparekassen Sjælland was listed on the Copenhagen Stock Exchange on 4 December 2015.[2]
