Helaba is a reliable commercial bank, a central bank for the German S-Group with an approach based on cooperation and a committed development bank: we make a difference for our customers - in Germany and beyond.
Our workforce of over 6,000 employees at various locations in Germany and abroad all share a clear vision of what responsible action means for a bank: to conduct business as a reliable partner for the advancement of our stakeholders and society as a whole, while at the same time always acting on the basis of sound values. That's exactly what we mean by "values with impact."
This clear strategy and a profound understanding of the needs of our customers is the cornerstone of lasting partnerships.
As one of the largest commercial banks in Germany, we offer companies, banks, the public sector as well as commercial real estate and institutional clients comprehensive financial services from a single source. We support them in their national and international activities. We provide the savings banks with high-quality, innovative financial products and services. In addition, as the central bank for the savings banks in the German federal states of Hesse, Thuringia, North Rhine-Westphalia and Brandenburg, we are a strong partner for 40 percent of all German savings banks. Under the umbrella of Helaba, WIBank supports the State of Hesse in a variety of ways with various development programmes.
With local roots and international reach, we concentrate on four business segments: Real Estate, Corporates & Markets, Retail & Asset Management and Public Development Business. Our subsidiaries, such as Frankfurter Sparkasse and Landesbausparkasse Hessen-Thüringen, also contribute to this.
Sustainability is an integral part of our activities and we have defined clear and transparent principles in this respect. In addition to responsible banking, we are involved in many areas of public life and support ground-breaking projects in education, culture, the environment, sport and social issues.
We can only succeed with values thanks to the day-to-day commitment, expertise and enthusiasm of our workforce. That is something we know and encourage. And it is also something you will notice when you do business with us.
Helaba presents itself with a new mission statement and an up-to-date brand identity.
