Interim report for the first half of 2018

Danske Bank posted a net profit of DKK 9.1 billion in the first half of 2018, a decrease of 12% from the level in the first half of 2017. The result reflects a continuation of good lending growth but also weak trading income and lower fee income due to uncertainty in the financial markets.

"In the first half of 2018, the positive momentum in our lending activities continued, while developments in the financial markets had an adverse effect as the global uncertainty and investor reticence contributed in particular to a weaker development in net trading income," says Thomas F. Borgen, Chief Executive Officer.
