Michael Rasmussen, Nykredit's Group Chief Executive:
– We have strengthened and expanded the alliance with the partner banks of Totalkredit in a number of areas over the past few years. We are now taking it one step further, joining together to offer investment products. By combining our efforts, we will obtain the best position to develop even more attractive products and provide even better customer experiences at both Sparinvest and Nykredit.

We will now start the process of combining the two companies. Peter Kjærgaard, Head of Nykredit Wealth Management:
– This process will take some time, but there is a huge potential: Significantly enhanced distribution power, even stronger wealth management expertise and a broader and improved product portfolio, which make for a strong platform to meet any new demands and needs that both personal and institutional clients place on us as an asset manager – also in the long run.
