Continental Bank (Traditional Chinese: 大陸銀行) was a bank in China. It specialized in savings, warehouses, trusts and real estate business. It was founded in Tianjin in 1919 by Mr. Feng Guozhang, the acting president of Republic of China and Mr. Tan Lisun, the former Nanjing director of Bank of China. Half-month later, a Beijing branch was also established. In 1942, its headquarters was moved to Shanghai. In 1952, it was closed down.[1][2][3]

Tha bank, together with Yien Yieh Commercial Bank, Kincheng Banking Corporation and China & South Sea Bank, are called "Four Northern Banks", which were the four most capitalized commercial banks in Northern China in the 1920s.[4]
