Direct investments

Denmark as a Creditor Nation - Part 1

After a number of years of current-account surpluses, Denmark has accumulated net foreign assets of kr. 589 billion. The net assets contribute to widening Denmark's economic room for manoeuvre without denting financial market confidence. Moreover, the return on the net assets improves consumption opportunities. The composition of different types of assets and liabilities influences the total investment income. A sizeable share of the investment income can be attributed to the return on direct investment, in which area Denmark has a substantial positive net position. Furthermore, in 2011 and 2012, Denmark posted profits from interest-bearing investment despite the continued net debt for these items. The reason is low interest payments on Denmark's debt to non-residents.
