DLR is owned by 53 local and national banks, which distribute DLR’s loans.

Business Partners

We finance commercial and agricultural properties together with local banks

We provide finance to commercial and agricultural properties in the broad sense. At the end of Q3 2020, agricultural properties accounted for 55.5%, commercial properties for 39.0% and owner-occupied properties and residential farms for 5.5% of our total loan portfolio.

DLR has provided finance to Denmark’s agricultural sector since our establishment as Dansk Landbrugs Realkreditfond in 1960. As a result, we have unique insights into and special ties with Denmark’s agricultural sector, to which we have provided finance in good times and bad for almost 60 years. We have provided finance for commercial properties since 2001, and commercial properties make up the fastest growing segment of our loan portfolio.

Advisory services are provided and loans distributed through the branch network of DLR’s shareholder (owner) banks.
