Denmark's financial system has fared better than those of most of its European neighbours in recent years, largely because it escaped serious damage in the sub-prime and euro zone crises. Credit and non-life insurance premiums went through a period of stagnation, but expanded robustly in 2016 and 2017.

Denmark's financial services sector accounted for about 5.2% of GDP and employed 2.6% of the workforce in 2017, according to Eurostat. This is a little higher than the EU averages of 4.4% and 2.5% respectively.

The banking sector has seven systemically important banking groups: Danske Bank (including Realkredit Danmark), Nordea Bank Danmark (including Nordea Kredit), Jyske Bank (including BRFkredit), Nykredit Realkredit (including Nykredit Bank), Sydbank, DLR Kredit and Spar Nord Bank. Banks are regulated by the Financial Supervisory Authority (Finanstilsynet, the principal financial regulator). In addition, the country has more than 100 small regional or local banks.
