The central bank said on Wednesday that banks and mortgage-credit institutes would now be able to pledge securities from 12 Danish financial institutions as collateral and that a 20% haircut would apply to these assets.
Assets accepted as collateral include securities from: BI holding, the parent company of BankInvest
