Record year for purchases of foreign securities

Danish private investors, i.e. employees and pensioners, have set a record with a purchase of foreign securities worth kr. 23 billion in 2021. This is on top of the very large purchases in 2020. Last time the purchases were in that order of magnitude was in 2004-06, when there were large price increases on the global stock market.
