Ikano Bank is a consumer finance bank established in 1995 by Ingvar Kamprad (the founder of IKEA).

It now has its head office in Malmö with branch offices in Sundbyberg, Älmhult, Asker, Glostrup, Nottingham and Helsinki. Ikano Bank also conducts business in Germany, Poland, Austria, Finland and Russia via separate companies.

Ikano Bank offers loans, savings accounts and partner business supplying sales finance solutions to large retailers, including IKEA, Volkswagen, Audi, Lindex, Hemtex, Skoda, Shell and Preem.
