    It will be very exciting to support and work to ensure that Swedbank Robur achieves its vision of becoming a world leader in sustainable value creation
    Joachim Spetz, Chairman of Swedbank Robur
    Following recent strong debate about Swedbank and questions about the bank’s control of suspicious money laundering in the Baltics, I have concluded that the media attention is not compatible with my CEO role at Södra. Therefore, I have decided that the best alternative is to leave the position as Chair of Swedbank with immediate effect.
    Lars Idermark
    We have been informed about the EBM decision, and see that it contributes in providing answers to some of the current questions raised about the bank's business operations
    Hans Strandberg, Attorney-at-law, Nordia.
    After reviewing the FRA Update, the Board confirms its continued confidence in the CEO and her ability to lead and manage the Bank's work in the fight against money laundering.
    Lars Idermark, Chair Swedbank
    Swedbank is committed to high ethical standards and we acknowledge that the risk of financial crime is a major challenge to society. We will continue to invest in our processes and technology and ensure that improvements are integrated into effective and sustainable day-to-day risk management practices.
    Birgitte Bonnesen, President and CEO Swedbank
    As we have repeated many times, we act on different signals. Therefore, it was natural for us to act when the disclosures about Danske Bank came out on the market. That was the background to our analysis.
    Birgitte Bonnesen, President and CEO Swedbank
    It feels inspiring to supplement our existing fund offering, and be able to offer clients a possibility to invest in small companies in emerging markets. This is a sector that previously has been quite difficult to access and invest in.
    Jens Barnevik, Portfolio Manager at Swedbank Robur
    We take the report presented on Uppdrag granskning very seriously. Preventing and averting money laundering is one of the bank’s most important responsibilities. Therefore, I have given EY a broad mandate to independently and thoroughly investigate the information that was presented on the TV programme.
    Birgitte Bonnesen, President and CEO, Swedbank
    The Board of Directors welcomes Birgitte Bonnesen’s decision to initiate an external investigation. We have complete confidence that Birgitte Bonnesen, together with the Group Executive Management, will put their full focus into solving this issue.
    Lars Idermark, Chairman of the Board, Swedbank
    We are confident with our systems and processes we have to prevent and avert money-laundering. When we get signs, we take action. At the same time, we recognise that this kind of serious crime is one of the toughest challenges that our industry faces today
    Gabriel Francke Rodau

    Climate change is one of today's most important issues, and it is crucial that all countries, as well as companies, are ambitious and take an active part in driving the needed changes and make them happen. At present there is no comprehensive scientific method for financial companies and banks, and we look forward to contributing to the methodology that can result in relevant and scientific goals for our entire industry.

    If people are concerned about Europe, they look at the Nordic region as a safe region. Should the European stock market continue to be a bit unstable, the Nordic region can be a relative winner, as the Scandinavian companies in general have stronger balance sheets and very well-functioning corporate governance.
