It was a curious unscheduled break down first ascribed to Nordea Bank AB (STO:NDA-SEK) (by me as well – but I can live with it.) Apparently Nordea Bank AB (STO:NDA-SEK) wouldn’t and told somebody the tale.

What is far more interesting to the general is that with respect to the Valuewalk article – again apparently – is:  There seem to be a stricter rule enforced than I had thought. Now it is –apparently – not only at the end of the month Danske Bank A/S (OTCMKTS:DNSKY) (CPH:DANSKE) has to forward the clearing file to the CB; but every single day.

The point Finanstilsynet (the bank inspection) was making has not been ignored by the Danish media – here DR [the official radio station] quotes the paper Børsen on May 23, 2013.
