Description of Topdanmark

Topdanmark is a well-run Danish insurance company the shares of which have increased sharply in the past 20 years. So far, the company has spent profits to buy up own shares, which has made the share increase sharply, but the strategy is now changed to the company paying out high dividends. This has stabilised the share so the latest year has shown stability but with fluctuation. This can be seen in a graph of the share in the first three quarters of 2018:

According to the company’s own website, the Topdanmark share is characterised by:

  • Focused strategy
  • Danish stakeholder
  • Stable insurance risk
  • Low cost percent
  • Limited financial risk
  • Synergy between life and non-life insurance
  • Effective capital management
  • Limited top line growth
  • Profitable growth - in the mentioned sequence
  • High net results
  • No protection against a takeover in the articles of association


In addition, regarding the company’s dividend policy:

Topdanmark has a disciplined approach to capital so that capital that is not necessary in order to operate the business, is allocated to the shareholders and the accumulation of unnecessary capital is avoided.

The board has adopted a distribution policy by which distribution in the future will occur in the form of an annual dividend payment. Payment of dividends will take place immediately after the conclusion of the ordinary general meeting. The dividend will correspond to a pay-out ratio of at least 70%.


The risk with this strategy is that the share will decrease substantially. For example, this could happen if the profits suddenly drop. The share may also decrease even without the reduction of the profits.

As described earlier, this is about a high risk strategy, as gearing of 2.5 - 2.6 is used, but the level can be set individually.

If the share drops significantly, the investor can lose his entire investment. This is about a high risk investment, given that gearing is used. However, the gearing can be set individually or removed entirely.

It must also be emphasised, that historical return and historical return percentages are no guarantee for future gains.
