Statement by Governor Hugo Frey Jensen in connection with Loomis' acquisition of BKS
Hugo Frey Jensen states:
"We are content that now there is a buyer to Bankernes Kontantservice (BKS).
BKS was established in 2010, and at the time Danmarks Nationalbank joined the circle of owners in order to increase security in the cash handling. This was necessary to prevent a recurrence of the violent robberies that the sector was exposed to in the previous years.
This goal has now been obtained, and thus there is no longer a natural reason for Danmarks Nationalbank to be co-owner of BKS."
