Nordea’s comment on media enquiry about ongoing investigation by Danish Prosecution Service
On Wednesday June 12, Nordea was today visited by representatives for the Danish Prosecution Service (the Danish State Prosecutor for Serious Economic and International Crime, SØIK) regarding anti money laundering compliance questions related to former International Branch customers. Nordea is already under investigation by SØIK and this visit relates to the pending investigation.
In 2014 Nordea changed our strategy to focus on the Nordics and our Nordic customers. As part of that, we evaluated our customers at International Branch from a risk and compliance perspective and exited the customers who didn’t meet our criteria.
- We are fully cooperating with the Prosecution Service to ensure that they have access to all relevant information. We have nothing further to add at this point, says Frank Vang-Jensen, Country Head in Denmark and a member of Group Executive Management.
At Nordea we take our responsibility for the prevention of financial crime very seriously as a natural part of our daily operations. Since 2015, Nordea has invested more than EUR 730m within risk, compliance and resilience, and we have more than 1,500 employees working solely on fighting money laundering and financial crime. In the past year alone, our employees have undergone 110,000 hours of training to become better at detecting financial crime.
Nordea will not accept being used as a platform for financial crime, so we are committed to continuing upgrading our defence systems to become even better.
