Our history is both long and short. The company was started in Norway in 1999, but our owners have several hundred years’ experience in the finance sector.
The origin of EnterCard is Sparebank 1 credit card which was established in Trondheim. Swedbank acquired the company in 2003, and in 2005, in co-operation with Barclays Bank, they formed a joint venture to become leading regarding credit cards in the Scandinavian market.
Part of Swedbank’s Swedish card activity became a part of the new enterprise which retained the original trademark EnterCard.
That is the short history. On the other hand, our two owners both have a long history and enormous competence in the area. For example, Barclay Banks’s card company, Barclaycard, carrying over 40 years’ experience, has succeeded in becoming the largest credit card issuer in Europe.
EnterCard has grown strongly during the last five years, and developed into being a successful Scandinavian card company in Norway, Sweden and Denmark.
