Banking regulations – The primary task of the Danish FSA is supervision of financial undertakings – banks, mortgage-credit institutions, pension and insurance companies, etc. The most important supervisory activity is ensuring that undertakings have adequate own funds to cover their risks (supervision of solvency). The Danish FSA also supervises the securities markets in Denmark. It ensures that listed companies comply with their obligations to publish internal knowledge and other relevant information. Supervision of the stock market also includes supervision to make sure that prospectuses are published when securities are offered to the public and that prospectus materials satisfy all statutory requirements. Finally, the Danish FSA monitors the markets with a view to intervening in market abuse (insider dealing and price manipulation).
