Danske Bank in dialogue with US securities industry regulator

As stated in the press release of 4 October 2018, Danske Bank is currently in dialogue with the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), which is conducting a criminal investigation in relation to the case of possible money laundering at Danske Bank’s branch in Estonia.

In addition to dialogue with the DOJ Danske Bank has received an inquiry from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), which is also carrying out an investigation.

Danske Bank is cooperating with all relevant authorities in order to clarify the full details of the case.

“We have no information about when the investigations conducted by DOJ and SEC are expected to be completed, nor do we know what the outcome of these will be. We continue to cooperate with the authorities in order to establish a complete picture of the events of the case,” says Jesper Nielsen, Interim CEO of Danske Bank.
