Danske Bank is a Nordic bank with strong local roots and bridges to the rest of the world. For more than 150 years, we have helped people and businesses in the Nordics realise their ambitions. Today, we serve personal, business, and institutional customers and in addition to banking services, we offer life insurance and pension, mortgage credit, wealth management, real estate, and leasing services. In Denmark, Danske Bank’s roots go back to 1871, when Den Danske Landmands bank was founded. Through the years, the bank has grown through mergers with many local and regional banks. One of the most important mergers took place in 1990, when Den Danske Landmands bank merged with two other major Danish banks, making Danske Bank the largest bank in Denmark.

Danica Pension is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Danske Bank Group. We have regional offices in large towns around Denmark and a subsidiary in Norway, where we are experiencing strong growth.

We have about one million customers in Denmark and Norway. We specialise in pension schemes, life insurance policies and health insurance covers and we have total pension funds of DKK 500 billion with annual contributions of DKK 35 billion.
