Michael Rasmussen, Group Chief Executive:
"The Nykredit Group is owned by an association of customers, and this should be felt. Together with our majority shareholder, Forenet Kredit, we want to share our progress with customers, so when Nykredit performs well, our customers share in the success. This is why I am pleased that the Committee of Representatives of Forenet Kredit has decided to make a DKK 2.4bn capital contribution to us, which we will turn into cash benefits for our customers."
"Including the customer discount, Totalkredit homeowners are currently offered the lowest administration margin in the market on our main products in case of full mortgaging, including fixed-rate repayment loans, which is our most popular product."
