Business and Finance in Denmark

A brief introduction to the Business and Finance sector in Denmark


Business Woman Study Financials

The Danish finance sector is recognised as one of Denmark’s positions of strength. The sector’s diverse opportunities include banking, investment, insurance, pension, and Fintech (financial technologies). The cluster Copenhagen FinTech represents this sector. What characterises the Fintech cluster is its ecosystem of companies, knowledge institutions, industry associations, and public actors that work together. This gives the sector great possibilities for innovation, development and growth, making itself relevant now and in the future.
