LBBW Group Overview

The History of LBBW.


Landesbank Baden-Württemberg can look back over a long history. One of Germany's first savings banks numbers among its predecessors. In 1818, Queen Catherine of Württemberg established Württembergische Sparkasse "for the benefit of the poorer ranks of society". In 1975, the successor institute, Württembergische Landessparkasse, merged with Girokasse Öffentliche Bank und Sparkasse Stuttgart and was renamed Landessparkasse Girokasse - öffentliche Bank.

In December 1977, the name of the last-mentioned was changed into Landesgirokasse (LG).

When payment transactions began in 1916, Württembergische Kommunale Landesbank was established as the central bank of the savings banks in Württemberg. At the end of 1988 it merged with Badische Kommunale Landesbank to become Südwestdeutsche Landesbank (SüdwestLB).

LBBW in its present form was created with effect from 1 January 1999 through the merger of Südwestdeutsche Landesbank Girozentrale, Landesgirokasse öffentliche Bank und Landessparkasse and Landeskreditbank Baden-Württemberg Marktteil (established in 1924).

This meant that, for the first time in the history of Germany's landesbanks, a vertical merger took place within the S-Finanzgruppe. Former Landesgirokasse contributed a strong retail business to the new bank as Germany's second-largest savings bank while former SüdwestLB had extensive wholesale operations. Consequently, the new Landesbank Baden-Württemberg covered the entire banking business comprehensively.

At the beginning of 2005 LBBW took over Landesbank Rheinland-Pfalz as a wholly-owned subsidiary and integrated it fully into the LBBW Group on 1 July 2008 under a new name, Rheinland-Pfalz Bank. Baden-Württembergische Bank (BW-Bank) has formed an integral part of LBBW since 1 August 2005 as a dependent institution. On 1 April 2008 the LBBW Group pooled its activities in Central Germany under the roof of dependent institution Sachsen Bank.
