"If is Topdanmark's largest shareholder holding a stake of 25.2% with voting rights of 28.3%. The Board of Directors must protect the interests of all shareholders and finds it natural that If wants to be represented on the Board”.
I would like to welcome Torbjörn Magnusson on Topdanmark's Board of Directors and look forward to continuing our work to create value for shareholders, customers and employees.

At the Annual General Meeting on 10 April 2014 the Board of Directors will propose election of:
