Nordea: Comments regarding media statements about Nordea Luxembourg and tax evasion

Media in the Nordic region has portrayed Nordea International Private
Banking in Luxembourg as a provider of tax haven structures for its
customers. We therefore want to make the following statement:

Nordea strongly denounces tax evasion. Already in the end of 2009,
Nordea International Private Banking in Luxembourg took proactive
measures beyond the requirements to secure all customers' holdings
and incomes on their accounts were reported to the tax authorities.
To ensure that activities related to offshore structures in Luxemburg
are fully compliant to our policies, we will once again review all
such structures.

- Compliance is the bank's absolute top priority. Our tax advice
policy and ethical standard are clear: we do not encourage or
facilitate tax schemes of our customers that are regarded as tax
evasion. We help our customers to pay the tax they should by
reporting to the authorities. However, we regret that we didn't have
these procedures already earlier, says Casper von Koskull, Group CEO.

Offshore structures can be used as a legal and administrative vehicle
for some customers with very complex, international business. In
these cases Nordea has a wide range of processes to ensure that the
customers declare their accounts to the tax authorities. Today - as
of 1 January 2016 - new rules are in place and all relevant
information will automatically be submitted to all relevant
authorities.

Other than in exceptional cases Nordea does not assist in setting up
offshore companies, and we do not accept customers that are
non-transparent towards relevant tax authorities.
