In February 1998 amendments to acts regarding the financial sector were proposed. They included the following:

  • specification of the rules regarding the professional secrecy obligations of the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority;
  • changes to the rules of crisis-management in financial institutions, for example by increasing the possibility to buy out minority shareholders and by introducing tax benefits in connection with takeovers of troubled financial institutions; and
  • harmonization of the rules governing affiliated companies in the financial sector.
