Arts and literature

​Saxo Bank supports initiatives in arts and literature that promote its core values of Integrity, Justice and Honesty by standing up and defending the principles of limited government, free markets and human rights. In addition to publishing special editions of books that have had a profound cultural influence Saxo Bank also sponsors innovative artistic projects that stimulate discussion as well as entertain. Saxo Bank believes that art – including fine art, music, literature etc. – is the barometer of a culture and that it provides the moment of rest which makes it possible for all individuals to reach their personal goals.​​​

Saxo Collection

Saxo Bank has long championed innovation, integrity and high performance, and with its collection of contemporary art, the Saxo Collection, the Bank also celebrates the courageous artists who seek new perspectives and challenge the status quo. One of the most significant corporate art collections in Denmark, the Saxo Collection features artworks from both established and emerging artists, particularly young Danish artists such as Michael Kvium, Allan Otte and Morten Schelde.

Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged"

Considered one of the most influential novels of the twentieth century, Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged has had a decisive impact on Saxo Bank and its seven corporate values. To celebrate this remarkable work of art and ideas, Saxo Bank has published a special edition, including a foreword by co-founders and CEOs Kim Fournais and Lars Seier Christensen that explores how the book’s themes resonate as strongly today as they did when first published in 1957.

"Atlas Shrugged offers a unique insight into some of the greatest dangers and the most destructive mechanisms that could threaten our future. The book also makes a convincing case for the benefits of preventing government from interfering with private enterprise – and we believe this is a crucial consideration in our current situation."
Kim Fournais and Lars Seier Christensen, co-CEOs, Saxo Bank

Jack Welch's "Winning"

Praised as one of the best management books ever written, Jack Welch’s Winning is brimming with ideas on how to lead a successful life and business. Saxo Bank co-founders and CEOs Kim Fournais and Lars Seier Christensen found Winning so inspiring and its values so in tune with the Bank’s philosophy that they have published a special Saxo Bank edition of the book to share with clients and anyone interested in its message that success is possible for those who choose to pursue it.

KulturERhverv – Culture Business

KulturERhverv (Culture Business) is an intersection forum for cultural industries and the Danish business community, which works to create the magic that occurs when cultural industries and business merge and form partnerships and projects. KulturERhverv works to utilise the potential that lies in cooperating and sharing knowledge between culture and business. Saxo Bank supports KulturERhverv because it is a forum that can help stimulate the understanding of value creation and synergies, and help to break down the traditional boundaries between culture and business.

Music and the arts

Saxo Bank believes that a rational man’s ambition is unlimited, and occasionally everyone needs to take time to reflect, to experience the sense of having reached a goal and gain the fuel to achieve further ambitions. Art provides that fuel and Saxo Bank accordingly sponsors both concerts and fine art.
