Saxo Bank has received a BBB rating with a positive outlook from S&P Global Ratings, according to the bank’s first-ever rating report.
In addition, Saxo Bank is currently in the process of being appointed a Systemically Important Financial Institution (SIFI) later this year by the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority (FSA). The SIFI designation is given to financial institutions that are considered critical to the functioning of the financial system and is a testament to Saxo Bank’s importance as it supports a growing number of retail clients and other banks, fintechs and brokers leveraging its technology.
Damian Hitchen, CEO MENA Saxo Bank, commented:

Both of these achievements demonstrates our commitment to providing top-quality platforms, products and services to our growing number of retail clients and institutional partners.”
The rating from S&P Global Ratings demonstrates Saxo Bank’s dedication to maintaining a strong financial position, resilient business model and providing cutting-edge services to its clients.
