Goals / remit

Goals / remit of the organisation: The Danske Bank Group, headquartered in Copenhagen, is the largest bank in Denmark and one of the leading financial enterprises in northern Europe. We offer a full range of banking services, with an emphasis on retail banking.

The Group has more than 5 million retail customers and a significant share of the corporate and institutional markets.

On 1 June 2012, we changed our organisation so that the Bank now consists of three business units - Personal Banking, Business Banking and Corporates & Institutions - that span all of the Group's geographical markets. As part of the reorganisation, all of our banking activities have been gathered under the Danske Bank brand name.

Our vision is to be the "Most trusted financial partner", and our mission to "set new standards in financial services".
