About Us

Since its foundation in 1971, Europäisch-Iranische Handelsbank AG is geared as a specialist bank towards business relations with Iran, with customers and business partners in Germany and Iran as well as in Europe and other parts of the world.

The Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg with its port, Germany’s gateway to the world, has always been an ideal location for the traditionally good trade relations between Germany and Iran. Therefore, the headquarter of Europäisch-Iranische Handelsbank AG is located in Hamburg’s historic Office Building District (Kontorhausviertel) that together with the opposite famous Warehouse District (Speicherstadt) is included in the UNESCO’s World Heritage list since 2015.

Competent employees with years of experience and knowledge of the market provide for the reliable handling of business with Iran, which can range from small single transactions to large projects.

Europäisch-Iranische Handelsbank has a international network of correspondent banks and two branches in Tehran and the Iranian free trade zone Kish Island.

As a German bank it is subject to the strict rules of the German Banking Supervision and is a member of the Deposit Insurance Fund of the Association of German Banks.
