Clients have IE 10 installed.
I need a website to be shown in IE 9 mode instead of IE 10 compatibility mode. (See attached.) I only want that one website to be shown as IE9.
I would prefer to set it by Group Policy, but even a registry setting would be ok by now.
I have already tried below Group Policy setting, but that drops it to IE 10 Compatibility:
User Configuration->Administrative Templates->Windows Components->Internet Explorer->Compatibility View->Use Policy List of Internet Explorer 7 sites.

I have found that if the MS compatibility file is dited, you can set it.
File:\\%LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\IECompatData\iecompatdata.xml
This wont help very much, because it will get overwritten as far as I know.

Do you have I control over is webpage?  If so, you should be able to do it using the X-UA meta tag:

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=9" />

Failing that you can create a very simple html page with this tag and embed an iframe to the site in question.

All untested but in theory should work

yep got zero chance of that but have you tried embedding the banking site as an iframe within your own page that has that meta tag?

Hmmm, that wasnt what I was looking for really.
Im not sure how it would handle the ssl in the embedded site? Wouldnt I get some errors about not all content secure, and then i'd had to click view all content?
