Lone is also co-founder of and partner at Swedish company Norfalck, and holds board seats in several international companies across Europe, Canada, and at the Chinese-owned Volvo Car Corporation. Schrøder has much international board experience and began her career in the Maersk Group in 1982.

Commenting on her departure, Lone Fønss Schrøder said: “I now consider my mission in Saxo Bank to be completed and I feel a need to focus on other assignments. I hand over a bank with a healthy capitalization, a new strategy under implementation and new, strong owners who will hopefully soon be taking over. I am extremely happy about the mutual cooperation we have had”.
Kim Fournais, founder and CEO of Saxo Bank, added: “I would like to thank Lone for her hard work and dedication as chairman, and I wish her the best of luck in the future.”
