In2019 the Danish Minister for Industry, Business and Financial Affairs appointed a group of experts to assess how to ensure – to a greater extent than hitherto – that the management of a financial business can be held liable for damages and criminal offences. The group has now reached the conclusion that the measures already taken in respect of regulatory framework have ensured that liability already has been tightened compared to before and during the financial crisis. Therefore, the group proposes only few further measures. The author is sceptical about the group’s presumptions and therefore recommends further measures to tighten liability for damages, including to introduce professional liability and, in some cases, to reverse the burden of proof.
