DANSKE BANK

Questions/Considerations for Directors

-   Given Danske Bank’s corporate governance structure, are the lines of authority clear to you? Why or why not?

 

=   If you were offered a position on the Danske Bank Board of Directors, how would you prepare yourself to exercise a director’s oversight responsibilities generally and with regard to risk management and compliance in particular?

 

-   Does the international scope of operations create any concerns for you? Would you assume that some of the international operations are immaterial to the Bank as a whole? If so, would that affect your oversight of such operations?

 

-   How would the membership of four or five employees affect your decision to join the Board of Directors? What would you expect from them in terms of competencies? What concerns would you have?
