Central Bank of Denmark

As an economist, I worked the first couple of years in the Statistic Department and was responsible for collecting and analysing interest rate statistics from the banking and mortgage industry in Denmark. Publications were publiced every month and I participated in meetings representing Denmark in the European Central Bank.

After working in the Statisitc Department, I was given a position in Government Debt Management, responsible for the strategic management of the government debt in coorporation with the Ministry of Finance, i.e. issuance, maturity and liquidity of debt, facilitate the central government's access to the financial markets in the longer term as weel as investment decisions for government assets.

As credibility is very important to the Central Bank, accuracy, professionalism and communication skills are very important qualifications that I used when working for the Central Bank. The Central bank of Denmark appriciates that human skills are valuable and should be constantly developed and I was therefore offered and participated in many different professonal as well as personal developing courses such as SAS, Excel, VBA, Communication, etc.

Working together with some of the best economists in the field, I learned a lot from this experience.
