All approvals in place regarding Nordea’s purchase of Danske Bank’s personal customer business in Norway

The Norwegian Financial Supervisory Authority has approved the sale of Danske Bank’s personal customer business in Norway to Nordea.

In a company announcement released on 7 June 2023, Danske Bank announced that it would exit the Norwegian market for personal customers and, in a press release published on 19 July 2023, that Nordea would be the buyer.

On 15 December and 20 December 2023, the sale was approved by the Norwegian Competition Authority and the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority, respectively, and all required public authority approvals have thus been obtained.

Danske Bank and Nordea remain committed to making the transition as smooth as possible for both customers and employees. The transaction is expected to be completed by the end of 2024.
