Bergens Skillingsbank was a Norwegian bank based in Bergen, Norway. It was established as a savings bank in 1857, but converted to a commercial bank in 1919. In 1993 it took over Norges Hypotekinstitutt.[1] In 1997 it changed its name to Bergensbanken, the same year as the company upgraded its offices.[2] In 1999 it was bought by Handelsbanken and amalgamated.[3]
