Saxo Bank has been on a remarkable journey over the past years. It is a true entrepreneurial success story that has evolved into an international leader within trading and investing – still with massive potential as more people start to invest across the world.

Henrik Andersen’s expertise in the area of ESG and sustainability is unparalleled, and we are truly proud that he is now a member of Saxo Bank’s Board of Directors.
