Convenient banking

We want to enable our customers to do their banking whenever and wherever it suits them. One of our main focuses recently has been to develop and launch new digital services and we strive to be the leading digital bank in Iceland.

We listen to the voice of our customers because their satisfaction and experience is important to us. We appreciate all suggestions and recommendations we receive. In order to keep track of how we can do a better job, we document all these suggestions and try to act upon them. We also keep a record of all ideas and praise we receive and direct them into the appropriate channels.
