Founded in 1884, the Glarner Kantonalbank (GLKB) provides the comprehensive array of banking services of a universal bank from a single source. Since 2010 GLKB has been acting as a limited company under special law whose main and legally anchored shareholder is and will remain the Canton of Glarus. The service offering of the GLKB addresses the needs of private as well as corporate customers. It places special focus on its mortgage lending and saving businesses, its corporate customer business segment as well as its asset management and investment activities. In addition, the bank accompanies succession planning projects and advises its customers on pension, inheritance and tax matters. As the mortgage lending and saving businesses are segments of increasing significance for the GLKB, they have been established and expanded via the banks internet services over the past years. This allows for an innovative web-based business model developed by the GLKB to address the entire customer base of German-speaking Switzerland (mortgage lending) as well as of Switzerland as whole (saving business). The Glarner Kantonalbank is firmly rooted in the Canton of Glarus and has strong ties with the local population. The bank is actively involved in the cultural, recreational and social space and supports regional financing projects within the framework of its performance mandate.
