A number of groups within the health sector have over a billion kroner on the line in an investment scandal that is festering at the pension fund PKA, according to Jyllands-Posten newspaper.

PKA administers the pension savings of 260,000 Danes and the company has invested heavily – particularly with the pension funds of nurses – in the recycling company Genan, which is expected to reveal a considerable loss in the coming days.

“The situation is really tough, but I have complete faith that the PKA management is battling to find the best possible solution,” Grete Christensen, the head of the nurses advocacy association Dansk Sygeplejeråd and deputy head of PKA, told Jyllands-Posten.
