As announced on 2 February 2017, Danske Bank A/S is looking into the possibilities of merging its activities in Finland into a single Finnish branch. As a part of this process, the decision by the Board of Directors of Danske Bank Plc to approve the merger of Danske Bank Plc with its parent company Danske Bank A/S has been registered in the Finnish Trade Register on 14 November, 2017. The merger is expected to take effect from 31 December 2017.

The merger is subject to the final approval by the Board of Directors of Danske Bank A/S and registration in the Danish Trade Register.

Following the merger, Danske Bank’s banking services will be offered in Finland by Danske Bank A/S, Finland Branch. Through the planned merger, the Danske Bank Group will achieve a uniform, simple organisational structure across the Nordic markets. The simpler our organization is, the easier it is for us to develop our services to the benefit of our customers.

The planned merger will be primarily of a technical nature and will not change the way in which the bank serves its customers, nor will employees experience changes.
