Recent Study: Denmark Country Risk Report Q2 2015

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.

Core Views

* Extraordinary monetary policy measures and improvement in the labour market will help offset a weaker external demand picture in Denmark. Private consumption will remain the main engine of growth, despite a very large household debt burden.
* Denmark will experience broad political stability over the coming decade, but changes to the welfare state will see divisions emerge between left and right, and old and young. Meanwhile, opposition to immigration will increase. The government will continue to face demands from Greenland for full independence, although this scenario will not play out in our 10-year forecast period to 2024.

Major Forecast Changes

* We have revised our discount rate forecast for Denmark to 0.00% until 2017, having previously projected 0.25% and 0.50% in 2015 and 2016 respectively.

Risks To Outlook

* Near-term risks to our economic outlook for Denmark are dominated by uncertainty over the eurozone following the election victory for Syriza in Greece on January 25. Despite the new anti-austerity government's efforts to secure more favourable bailout terms in recent weeks, the firm stance among the main creditor nations and the troika of the EU, ECB and IMF suggests that a Greek exit from the monetary union remains a significant tail risk.
* In the longer term, we caution that the high private sector debt burden in Denmark presents enormous uncertainty and could lead to a prolonged period of deleveraging.
