Our global network of correspondent banks enables us to carry out all commercial transactions reliably and as quickly as possible in virtually all currencies and parts of the globe.

In addition to processing international payment transactions, we also offer our clients the benefits of the Single Euro Payment Area (SEPA).

Berenberg Corporate Portal

The Berenberg Corporate Portal is a multibank-capable eBanking system for corporations that enables the integration of all German company accounts. The portal allows review, initiation and release of payment transactions, so that you can coordinate them independent of time or place, all with the accustomed data security.
We also offer the portal as a smartphone app that lets you use selected functions, like reviewing and releasing payments, and authentication when logging onto the portal.

Benefits of the portal:

  • At a glance: Your bank accounts in Germany
  • Web-based solution: No need for decentrally installed software
  • Central data handling: A clear overview of accounts provides for high transparency in financial processes
  • Maximum security: The highest European encryption standards like EBICS and a two factor-authentification ensure that sensitive data remain safe.
