David Lando selected as chair for the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority

Professor David Lando, who is the head of the Center for Financial Frictions (FRIC) at Copenhagen Business School and has been serving as acting chairman of the board of the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority, has been selected by Brian Mikkelsen as the new chairman of the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority.

The head of the Center for Financial Frictions (FRIC) at Copenhagen Business School, David Lando, has been appointed as the new chairman of the board of the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority.

“I am pleased to announce that David Lando has been selected as the new chairman of the board of the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority. He has been vice chairman of the board since 2014 and has executed this task with high proficiency. Also, he has a solid knowledge of the financial sector,” former Minister for Industry, Business and Financial Affairs Brian Mikkelsen said in a press release to the Financial Supervisory Authority.

Lando said that he is looking forward to the assignment, which is connected to his daily work as head of center at FRIC:

“The chairmanship is naturally a great responsibility, but also a very exciting and educative task. The job gives me an exceptional insight into how the regulations function in practice and therefore is closely connected to my own research activity in FRIC, which is more and more focused on the effects of financial regulations,” Lando said.

Besides his work as the head of center at FRIC, Lando has served as the acting chairman after Henrik Ramlau-Hansen resigned from the post in May of this year.
