Danish covered bonds are considered to be prime mortgages of very high quality, which makes them very secure assets for investors. And due to the high liquidity and trading volume it is a preferred asset for portfolio management - both for short term and long term investments.

For this reason danish covered banks provide mortgage lending at very reasonable costs as covered bonds are their only funding vehicle.

This has led to a persisting demand from owners of real property in Denmark for mortgage lending rendering the danish covered bonds market the largest in the world compared to GDP and the second largest in Europe in absolute terms only exceeded by the German pfandbrief-market.
