COPENHAGEN (Reuters) - Denmark's largest lender Danske Bank is looking for a new chief executive in the wake of a money laundering scandal centred on $235 billion in transactions that passed through its Estonia branch.
Below are some of the people who have been mentioned in the Danish media or by analysts as potential candidates:
He had a baptism of fire as governor in early 2015 when the Danish crown was driven higher by international and domestic investors threatening to break the currency's long-held peg to the euro.
Rohde came to the central bank from a position as head of Denmark's largest pension fund ATP, which he had held since 1998. ATP handles mandatory pension savings for more than 5 million Danes and is under strong political influence.
He started his career in the former Unibank, previously one of Denmark's largest, which later became part of Nordea.
The listing was eventually abandoned as backers outside of the stock exchange came forward.
Nykredit declined to comment.
He took on his current job after serving as global co-head of rates for two years.
Morgan Stanley declined to comment.
Lombard Odier declined to comment.

Larsen, 54, headed the global investment programme at Canadian pension fund Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan for two and a half years until he moved back to Denmark in the spring and became a board member at Kirk Kapital, the holding company for the family behind Lego toys.
Hellemann, 48, has been chief financial officer at Nykredit since 2016. Before that he was Nordea's head of banking in Denmark for two years. He was permanent secretary in the Danish finance ministry from 2010 to 2014.
Poulsen, 51, has been chief executive of the world's largest offshore wind farm developer, Denmark-based Orsted, since 2012. Before that he headed Danish telecom TDC.
Poulsen has worked for household names such as Novo Nordisk, McKinsey & Co., LEGO and KKR.
Stendevad, 45, the former chief executive of Denmark's largest pension fund, ATP, was hired last year as a Senior Fellow at the Connecticut-based hedge fund Bridgewater Associates.
Danish-born Bonnesen, 62, took over as chief executive of Sweden's Swedbank in 2016. She has held a wide range of senior positions since she began working at what would later become Swedbank more than 30 years ago.
