We want to inform investors, analysts and other stakeholders (IR stakeholders) openly and fully about the Group’s activities in compliance with statutory requirements and on the basis of corporate governance standards and recommendations from relevant organisations.
We constantly strive to meet the highest standards in this area and focus on providing consistent information by
- publishing information that we assume can have a significant effect on Danske Bank’s share price through NASDAQ OMX Copenhagen and making this information available on our IR website and to IR website subscribers immediately after publication
- making other published information available to the public on our IR website
We strive to be accessible to all IR stakeholders, and we wish to communicate openly and transparently, ensuring continuity and high quality in the information we disclose.
During a period of three weeks before the planned release of an interim financial report (silent period), we will not comment on matters related to the Group’s general financial performance or expectations.
Responsibility for IR
The Executive Board is responsible for the existence of an investor relations unit, whose head is responsible for the Group’s compliance with this IR policy.
Publication of financial reports
As a listed company, Danske Bank publishes statements of financial results and makes other company announcements to the public in accordance with statutory requirements.
Immediately upon release of financial statements and other major news,
- we publish such statements and announcements on our website along with supplementary information such as fact books and white papers. We publish information in both Danish and English to make it available to all investors.
- we arrange conference calls or video transmissions to be followed on the website, where the accompanying presentations are also available from the start. Transcripts of conference calls or video transmissions, including subsequent questions and answers, become available on the website a few days later. Similarly, press conferences will usually be transmitted on the website, where speeches and presentations are also published.
General IR information
We hold events for IR stakeholders as required in the form of conferences, road shows and investor meetings, and we regularly hold meetings with analysts and interested investors.
We publish information about coming events on our IR website. Speeches and presentations are also available on the site at the same time as the events are held or as soon as possible afterwards.
Investor Relations is responsible for the day-to-day contact with investors and analysts by telephone and e-mail. Questions are answered as long as they do not require the disclosure of inside information, conflict with considerations and competitiveness or are otherwise damaging to the Group.
At the annual general meeting, our shareholders can speak, submit questions to the Board of Directors and exercise their influence by voting on issues on the agenda. The chairman’s report is transmitted on the website.Approval
This is Danske Bank's current Investor Relations policy, approved by the Board of Directors on 9 December 2010.
