Corporate Governance

For several years Topdanmark has been focusing on Corporate Governance.

Definition

We have chosen to define Corporate Governance as:

Rules governing the framework for Management's incentives as well as how to act in the shareholders' and other stakeholders' best interests.

It is a key feature of Topdanmark's philosophy to maintain and build up those factors that unite the most important stakeholders: Customers, employees and shareholders, forming an unbreakable trinity.

Current state of Corporate Governance

  • Topdanmark has removed all the relevant limitations set out in the Articles of Association
  • The recommendations on good Corporate Governance by the Committe on Corporate Governance are practically met
  • Topdanmark believes that a share price reflecting the future earnings potential is the only real protection against an uninvited take-over
Corporate Governance
"Topdanmark has a practical approach to Corporate Governance. We do not believe it is sufficient to just observe a set of academic rules for the Board of Directors and Executive Board but actively to support the trinity between shareholders, customers and employees."
