"Joining forces will result in even stronger pension products. The merger enables us to make more investments that will help our customers get one step ahead. We do that by giving them an overview and the sense of security they're demanding now and in future – and now we're much better equipped at doing that," says Klitgård.

The process of integrating SEB Pension's customers into Danica Pension will be finalized in the first half of 209, Danica adds.
