Outlook for 2022

We expect net profit to be in the range of DKK 10-12 bn, including the gains from MobilePay, Danske Bank International and Danica Norway.


We continue to expect income from core banking activities to be higher in 2022, as higher net interest income driven by good economic activity will more than offset lower capital market and investment related fee income. Net income from insurance business and trading activities are expected below normalized levels based on
significant lower income in the first six month of the year and a modest recovery in income in the second half of the year subject to market conditions. The degree of uncertainty is higher than usual.


We expect costs in 2022 to reflect continued focus on cost management and to be around DKK 25.5 billion due to sustained elevated remediation costs. The outlook does not include any effects from a potential settlement of the Estonia matter in 2022 and from alternative approaches in order to accelerate the timeline for the debt collection issue.


Loan impairments are expected to be below normalised level, given our overall strong credit quality.


The outlook is subject to uncertainty and depends on economic conditions.
