About the Savings Bank

With 16,503 bn Euro total assets in 2019, Sparkasse Hannover is one of the top ten among the more than 300 German Savings Banks.

Considering Moody's Corporate Family Rating of Aa2 we belong to the best rated banks in the country.

Savings Banks are institutions governed by public law, which are answerable to their municipalities. The institutions of the Savings Banks Finance Group not only cooperate closely in the market, Savings Banks, Landesbanken and central building societies also support one another by means of a joint liability scheme.

This joint liability scheme is an important factor in the stability of the German banking sector. It secures the continued existence of the institutions and, as a result, protects customer deposits without limit as to amount.
