​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Advanzia Bank S.A. has been based in Luxembourg since its foundation in 2005. As such, we opted for a location that offers a stable political and social environment. In geographical terms, the financial hub of Luxembourg lies at the very heart of Europe, offering easy access to all of the markets of the European Union and the European Economic Area.

The quality of our banking products and services is guaranteed by the legal framework conditions, comprising both Luxembourg and EU regulations.
  • We are subject to Luxembourg banking laws, which are based on the CRD/CRR (Basel) regulations of the EU.
  • Advanzia is checked and regulated by the Luxembourgish Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (CSSF).
  • EU passporting rules enable us to offer our products and services in any country that belongs to the EU and the European Economic Area.
  • As a Luxembourg-based bank, Advanzia is a member of the Fonds de garantie des dépôts Luxembourg (FGDL) deposit protection system, which guarantees customer deposits of up to 100,000 euros.
  • ​Advanzia is an independent bank with a limited number of shareholders. At present the Kistefos Group, which is headquartered in Oslo (Norway), holds 60.3% of the issued shares. Kistefos has been the majority shareholder since 2006. ​
