Interim report – first half 2023

"In the first half of the year, we improved our profitability and continued to make progress towards meeting our ambitions for 2023.

Through a successful execution of our Better Bank strategy, we have created a strong foundation for remaining the market’s most attractive financial partner for our customers across all segments. We are pleased to see that customers increasingly recognise our enhanced service models, which is reflected in both internal and external customer satisfaction surveys. To strengthen this position further and unleash Danske Bank’s full potential, we recently announced our new Forward ’28 strategy and financial targets for 2026. 

I am happy that we can now resume capital distribution in the form of dividend, which is in line with our announcement at our recent Investor Update. On the basis of the net profit of DKK 10.2 billion for the period, the Board of Directors has decided to distribute a dividend of DKK 7 per share, which represents a pay-out ratio of 59%.

Chief Executive Officer
