About Resurs Bank
Resurs was founded in 1977 and is one of the fastest-growing niche banks in the Nordic region.

From our core business in retail finance, we have expanded our commercial offering to include savings accounts, insurance policies, consumer loans and credit cards. The latter includes our own Supreme Card, of which there are roughly 150,000 holders in the Nordic region.
