Danish news media: Danske Bank chairman has pocketed DKK 90 million over the last three years

In addition to his director's fee of DKK 1.8 million a year, Danske Bank's chairman of the board of directors, Ole Andersen, makes good money on his own company, OGA Holding, according to Danish news media Finans. Over a period of five years, the company has produced profits totaling DKK 140 million, and Andersen, a former partner in capital fund EQT, has pulled DKK 90 million out of the company's profits over the last three years. Andersen has responded to Finans, declining to participate in an article about OGA Holding. The most recent accounts reveal that the holding company's purpose is to "make capital investments in stocks and securities and other related business". Towards the end of 2016, OGA Holding possessed securities worth DKK 265.7 million in total, and it was revealed 18 months ago that the company had bought 22,000 stocks in Danske Bank worth DKK 4 million in total.
