Sparekassen Sjælland (Nasdaq Copenhagen: SPSJL) is a bank headquartered in Holbæk, Denmark.


Sparekassen Sjælland traces its history back to the foundation of Holbæk Amts Sparekassen on 23 December 1825 at Frydendal Manor. The estate's owner, Jacob Frederik van Deurs, was the first chairman of the board. He was succeeded by Chr. v. Barner from Kalundborg Slots Ladegård in 1829.[1] The current bank is the result of a series of mergers between local saving banks on Zealand and the bank has formerly operated under names such as Sparekassen Holbæk, Sparekassen for Holbæk og Omegn, Sparekassen Nordvestsjælland and Sparekassen Vestsjælland. The current name was introduced in 2001. In 2010, Sparekassen Sjælland merged with Næstved-based Max Bank. Sparekassen Sjælland was listed on the Copenhagen Stock Exchange on 4 December 2015.[2]



The current headquarters were built in 2002 and are located on the harbourfront in Holbæk. It houses approximately 150 employees. The bank has 27 branches across Zealand.

Sparekassen Fyn

Sparekassen Sjælland has the subsidiary Sparekassen Fyn which operates under its own name on the island of Funen (Danish: Fyn). It was created when Sparekassen Sjælland acquired Faaborg Sparekasse in 2013.[3]
