Dodd Frank Disclosures

Welcome to the Danske Bank Dodd-Frank Title VII Business Conduct Pre-Trade Disclosures Website.


Danske Bank A/S (“DB” or “We”) is registered as a Swap Dealer with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“CFTC”). As a Swap Dealer, under the CFTC’s Business Conduct Standards for Swap Dealers and Major Swap Participants with Counterparties (77 Fed. Reg. 9734), DB has disclosure obligations to certain counterparties and prospective counterparties in connection with CFTC-regulated swaps (a ”Swaps”). These obligations apply only in those instances where DB is entering into a Swap with a U.S. person, as defined by the CFTC’s Final Interpretive Guidance and Policy Statement Regarding Compliance With Certain Swap Regulations (78 Fed. Reg. 45292), who is not a Swap Dealer, Major Swap Participant, Security Based Swap Dealer or Major Security Based Swap Participant (“You”).

This website is accessible to all clients and will be updated regularly with various risk, incentives, conflicts of interest, disclosures and static material economic terms with respect to Swaps offered by DB.
