Arion Bank provides services to households, corporates, institutions and investors in three business segments: Retail Banking, Corporate & Investment Banking, and Markets. The service offering is further augmented by the subsidiaries Stefnir and Vörður. Stefnir is one of the largest fund management companies in Iceland, and Vörður is the fastest growing insurance company in Iceland, providing non-life and life insurance. The diverse service offering at Arion Bank means that the revenue base is broad and the loan portfolio is well diversified between retail and corporate customers. The high percentage of mortgage loans and the healthy distribution of loans across different sectors reduces credit risk.

The Bank is a market leader in terms of digital solutions and innovation. Numerous new digital solutions have been launched in the past few years, enhancing service to customers and making the Bank's operations more efficient, which in the long term reduces operating expenses across the Bank. The Bank’s structure has been simplified and the branch network and business premises have been streamlined.

Arion Bank has adopted an environment and climate policy and has in recent years made green financial services, such as green car loans, deposits, corporate loans and mortgages, available to its customers. The Bank has issued its first comprehensive green financing framework. The green financing framework encompasses the Bank’s financing and lending. The Bank has thereby pledged to use the capital it obtains under the framework on the credit markets in green loans to individuals and corporates as defined in the framework.
