Henrik Ramlau-Hansen has been appointed the new chairman of the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority (Finanstilsynet) by the Minister for Business and Growth, Troels Lund Poulsen. The appointment of Henrik Ramlau-Hansen is based on his extensive experience in the financial sector both in the bank and pension area as well as his many years of management experience.

In a press release from the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority, Henrik Ramlau-Hansen expresses excitement about taking up the position as chairman of the board. He also explains the societal importance of the work performed by the Danish FSA: “A well-functioning supervisory authority contributes to a high level of trust when customers take financial decisions. At the same time we are facing new challenges such as low interest rates and increased digitalization, which also have a significant effect on the financial sector. In this context, it is important to have an effective financial supervisory authority and I am looking forward to contributing to this with the rest of the board members and directors of the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority”, says Henrik Ramlau-Hansen.

The board also counts another faculty member at the Department of Finance, Professor David Lando, who has been re-elected for the position as deputy chairman.
