Financial results 2019

“The financial results for 2019 were as expected. Customer activity was at a good level in Denmark especially due to high remortgaging activity. We also saw a good customer development and lending growth across our other core markets. However, low interest rates, margin pressure, higher impairments and increased costs due mainly to investments in compliance and AML-related activities had a negative effect on the result.
A number of extraordinary items also had an impact, positive as well as negative, on the results, but all in all, our financial performance remains under pressure." 

Chris Vogelzang
Chief Executive Officer

Annual general meeting

Unfortunately, Danske Bank A/S will have to postpone the annual general meeting called for 17 March 2020.

The decision has been made upon recommendation from the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority due to uncertainty about whether the meeting can be held in accordance with the health and safety guidelines issued by the Danish authorities.

We expect to hold the annual general meeting with the same agenda, and we will announce a new date as soon as possible.
