General meeting

We hold our general meeting once a year. 


Danske Bank fosters a strong compliance culture in order to ensure its integrity and to maintain the trust of our customers and society at large. We do this through the effective management of compliance risks, which entails compliance responsibilities for all employees.

Fighting financial crime

Preventing and fighting financial crime are two essential tasks that every responsible financial institution must perform. That is why we at Danske Bank have both an obligation and a commitment to comply with Danish and international anti-money laundering legislation and regulations and to fight money laundering and fraud against banks and customers. 

Continuing to strengthen and improve our efforts to preserve the integrity of our business and uphold our societal responsibility is a key priority for us.
