2016: A year of solid progress
In 2016, we launched a number of new products and solutions. DynamicPay, a product that hopefully will help thousands of small Danish businesses improve their cash flows and SundayOwner, an app that lets home owners know when it’s time to consider restructuring their loans - to name but a few. We also saw an improvement in customer satisfaction and solid rises in lending.

Grow your ambition - work with us
I've always known that taking charge of a group and leading the way comes natural to me. As a student, I thought I'd use my passion for leadership to go into consulting. But joining Danske Graduate in 2012 gave me the opportunity to test my leadership skills, taking my position as team lead right after completing the graduate programme. I quickly felt at home in that role. Motivating people and empowering them to develop is my true passion.Christina, Department Head
