Since 2011, the company has only called itself DNB for short as a nameless abbreviation (hence the spelling in three capital letters).

The largest shareholder is the Nærings- og Handelsdepartementet of the Norwegian state . DNB manages 2,011 capital in the amount of more than 2,000 billion Norwegian crowns . Even though the group is headquartered in Oslo, important departments are located in Bergen .
