Landsbankinn is the largest financial institution in Iceland with third of the market share for retail customers and corporate customers. Landsbankinn offers universal banking services and has a strong retail presence with the most extensive branch network in Iceland.

Landsbankinn began operating in its current form on 9 October 2008. Its history goes back to the establishment of Landsbanki Íslands in 1886 and the fisheries have always been an important client.

Lending to fisheries and seafood companies accounts for a fifth of the value of the bank's loan portfolio and the bank holds a 40% market share in lending to the fisheries. Ties between the bank and the fisheries industry are strong, rooted in a shared history and common interests. It is Landsbankinn's view that it is of great importance that the Icelandic fisheries industry continue to have a strong supporter among Icelandic financial undertakings.

Landsbankinn leads the field among domestic creditors to new ventures that promote development in fisheries. The bank employs a group of specialists in the field and places great emphasis on providing excellent service to this principal industry. The bank hosts various events and publications connected to the fisheries. Recently, the bank opened a website dedicated to innovative value creation in the fisheries and seafood industry.
