As from April 3, 2018, I have been appointed as a member of the Systemic Risk Council as an independent expert, replacing Professor Torben M. Andersen.
The other members of the Council are:
Lars Rohde, Chairman, Governor by Royal Appointment, Danmarks Nationalbank.
Michael Dithmer, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Industry, Business and Financial Affairs.
Martin Præstegaard, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Finance.
Ida Wolden Bache, Executive Director, Norges Bank, Independent expert.
Peter Schütze, Former CEO in Nordea Denmark, Independent expert.
Per Callesen, Governor, Danmarks Nationalbank.
Jesper Berg, Director General, the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority.
Karen Dortea Abelskov, Director, the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority.
Sophus Garfiel, Permanent Secretary, Ministry for Economic Affairs and the Interior.
The key role of the Systemic Risk Council is to identify systemic financial shocks at an early stage, thereby preparing for initiatives to dampen the adverse effects that such shocks might have on the financial system and the economy more widely.
I look forward to this new task.
