Preventing money laundering is one of Swedbank’s most important responsibilities
Swedbank takes its anti-money laundering responsibilities seriously, and devotes significant resources to satisfying its obligations. This is a complex task that can include monitoring transactions, identifying potential red flags and performing analysis. This is an ongoing process, around the clock, every day of the year. When suspected money laundering is identified, we are committed to complying with our obligations.
Representatives of Swedbank, including CEO Birgitte Bonnesen, have conducted interviews with major news outlets to answer public questions. A conference call was also held with investors, analysts and the media. The interviews emphasise that Swedbank is proactive when signs of suspicious activity are detected.
- I do not recognize the way our bank is portrayed in SVT. We take suspected money laundering activities very seriously and invest significant resources to these important questions. We are investigating the allegations presented in the media, and we are cooperating with the relevant authorities. We are committed to continue working to identify and prevent money laundering in order for all our customers to feel safe, says Birgitte Bonnesen, CEO of Swedbank.
