In November 2016, the association Norliv acquired 25 per cent of the shares in Nordea Liv & Pension – thus automatically making all of Nordea Liv & Pension's 300,000 customers co-owners of their pension company. In April 2018, Velliv Foreningen acquired another 45 per cent of the shares in Velliv, meaning that Velliv Foreningen now owns 81 per cent. In the coming years, Nordea will be bought out completely, giving Velliv Foreningen full ownership of the company.
Velliv Foreningen has DKK 8 billion worth of funds, and only Velliv customers are members of and can have an influence on how the return should be spent. Moreover, the association will get a share of Velliv's future profit, corresponding to the shareholding of 81 per cent.
