In recent years, the pension industry in Denmark has expanded its activities beyond core business. For example, pension funds now engage in supplying financial products which previously were exclusively offered by banks.
Also, the industry shows signs of consolidation, characterized not only by mergers but also by some pension funds, typically the bigger ones, taking over here saving deposits from smaller pension funds.
To discuss these and related issues, the Danish CFA Society had invited to a members' meeting on March 28, 2017. I acted as a moderator at the meeting, which was attended by more than 100 CFA members.
The panel of speakers comprised three leading CEOs within the Danish pension industry, namely (a) Per Klitgård, Danica Pension, (b) Allan Polack, PFA Pension, and (c) Hasse Jørgensen, Sampension.
