Facts and figures

According to EBF, Norway has 119 banks. The largest banks are Nordea, Danske bank, DNB and Bank Norwegian. 

Thanks to the majority of Norwegian population increasingly using online banking, the number of physical branches in Norway is decreasing significantly. 95% of all Norwegians use the internet for online banking which has given the banking sector large productivity gains and lowering the costs. The cost/income ratio in 2020 on average was 37.9%. (Statista, 2020)
