Outlook 2019

The outlook for 2019 has been changed from Interim Report First Quarter 2019.

We now expect net profit for 2019 to be in the range of DKK 13-15 billion

We now expect expenses to be in the range of DKK 25.5-26 billion. 

The outlook is subject to uncertainty and macroeconomic developments.

We maintain our longer-term ambition of being in the top three among major Nordic peers in terms of return on shareholders’ equity.
