About Ikano Bank

Ikano Bank is owned by founders of the Swedish company, IKEA and shares the same values and has been providing expert finance products in the UK for 20 years.

Our heritage has taught us that having a strong and simple idea, combined with hard work and good values is an important recipe for success. Thus, all our financial products are simple, easy to understand and can help create possibilities for our customers.

About our history

Originally part of the home furnishing company IKEA, which was founded by Ingvar Kamprad in 1943 and then during the 1970s the Ikano branched into managing real estate, financial services and insurances for IKEA. By 1988, we became an independent group of companies, owned by the Kamprad family.

The Ikano Group today

Today the Ikano Group owns and develops competitive and profitable companies in the areas of finance, real estate, asset management, insurance and retail. What we have done differently is work together to create long-term solutions based on fair lending terms that brings value to our customers and helps them succeed.

Global presence

We operate in Europe and Asia and our head office is located in Luxembourg. In the UK, our business is based in Nottingham and was established in 1994. We understand what our UK clients need and we deliver our products accordingly.

Our promise is fair terms

At Ikano we believe that being on fair terms at all times is what builds our strong customer relationships, creating value and growing a business. The one promise we live by - on fair terms – underpins all our business dealings.

Our values

Ikano stays focused by three basic values, which are common sense and simplicity, working together and simply being different and these values support our promise, which are fair terms.

Ikano Bank Services
