"Velliv got off to a good start in 2019 where contributions once again broke the record. Many companies choose Velliv as their new pension provider, and our existing customers choose to extend the cooperation.

This trend reflects Velliv's strong position in the pensions market and the fact that we have an attractive value proposition with three sources of return based on a top-of-market investment return, an interest rate of 5 percent on DinKapital and bonus from Velliv Foreningen. We have also strengthened our personal advice even more, which is both our strategic platform and in accordance with our customers' needs", says Steen Michael Erichsen, CEO of Velliv and continues:

"We deliver solid returns to the customers and profitable performance in line with our strategy. This will be for the direct benefit of our customers in the form of bonus from Velliv Foreningen."
