I was ignorant of all this at the time of posting this. Hitler had banking connections to the warburgs but only when he needed to rearm. The bankers really don't care who they fund, as long as the make a profit. If all the bankers refused to fund Nazi Germany, Germany might have fell to the USSR in 1940.

That being said he nationalized the reich banks for many years before privatizing it to aquire the necessary money via debt in funding rearmament.
