After the war, dividing the city and West Berlin blockade, Berlin desperately needed a strong financial institution that supports the rebuilding of the economy. Berliner Bank is the right partner and started a bank with 40 branches, for the econmic reconstruction, 1,500 employees and 75 000 customers. The economic boom in the 50s succeeded. Berliner Bank contributes significantly to the stands by the West Berlin economy with loans to one side and continuously builds relationships at home and abroad. The Berlin Central Bank acquires the status of a foreign trade bank and can handle key import and export business. The bank is growing.

In 1963, 14 percent more customers as in the previous year, invest their money to the Berliner Bank. The growth was in the passing year only by 5.5 percent. The Bank had a significant increase in the customer base to more than 750 000 customers to 1975. In the 80s we face a booming economy and rising consumption in Germany.

The expansion of the branch and branch network in the eastern part of the city and in the former East Germany is promising. By the end of 1993 they created a total of 47 branches in East Berlin and Brandenburg. The first January 1994 marked another turning point: Landesbank Berlin, Berlin and Berlin Hyp Bank merge to form Bank Gesellschaft Berlin. Until 1999, the Berliner Bank moves within the company, however, almost entirely in the background. That's why it wasn't the heart of the banking scandal which reached its peak in 2001. High credit risk and real estate have brought the banking company to the brink of insolvency.
