Organisation

PFA Pension is owned by PFA Holding A/S, and the Group’s history dates back to 1917.

The share capital of the parent company PFA Holding amounts to DKK 1 million, and the maximum dividend distributable by the company is 5 % of the share capital, equalling DKK 50,000. In this way, the ownership structure supports PFA’s objective to create the greatest possible value for its customers.

In PFA, we look to our customers for advice. This is why we have a Customer Board consisting of 70 executive employees from our largest corporate customers, who make sure that PFA is in touch with the customers’ needs and requirements.

The shareholders of PFA Holding are the PFA Foundation and other shareholders which primarily comprise the founding organisations from 1917, whose members and employees are for the main part customers in PFA. The PFA Foundation donates money to activities that benefit both existing and retired PFA employees.

PFA Holding's Board of Directors is identical to PFA Pension's Board of Directors.

 

The Customer Board
