Jesper Nielsen participates in money laundering hearings

Our acting CEO is going to represent Danske Bank at two public hearings concerning money laundering.

This week, the Danish Parliament and the European Parliament in Brussels will host two public hearings, in which Danske Bank takes part.

Both hearings concern money laundering and will touch upon the case of potential money laundering in Danske Bank’s Estonian branch.

We fully understand that politicians in both Denmark and at EU level are critical of Danske Bank in connection with the Estonia case, and it is only natural that they show great interest in the money laundering topic more generally. For this reason, we are happy to participate so that we can provide politicians with answers to the questions that they may have. We see these hearings as part of our efforts to rebuild trust in the bank.

Jesper Nielsen

Acting CEO
