It is alleged that the Company made false and misleading statements to the market. Danske Bank was overstating its profits by including the gains derived from the money laundering scheme in the Estonian branch. The claim is based on allegations that Danske Bank had enough knowledge to publish an internal report into allegations of money laundering far earlier than Sept. 19, 2018 and delayed an investigation to the prejudice of its investors.
A lawsuit has been filed in Copenhagen by some of the world’s leading international and Danish law firms, on behalf of investors who suffered investment losses in Danske Bank’s share price after various disclosures related to an estimated EUR 200 billion money transfer scheme involving non-resident Eastern European and Russian customers in the Bank’s Estonian Branch. Information about critical lapses in Danske Bank’s know your customer and anti-money laundering internal enforcement policies, and its failure to act upon both internal and external warnings of non-compliance, caused a more than a 40% decline in Danske’s stock price resulting in losses for investors of more than USD $15 billion.
Since March 2018, Danske Bank’s share price has fallen 31% from DKK 247.70 to DKK 170.10 in September 2018.
