Greater Copenhagen is widely acknowledged as one of the world’s leading smart cities. The smarter way of doing things also applies to the conditions for setting up or running a business in the city. The smarter way of doing business boosts productivity and leaves room for creativity.
Copenhagen’s strong asset management tradition has its roots in the Danish labour market model, where employees and employers have created a unique pension system. Since its inception in the 1970s, it has amassed assets of over EUR 500bn. Pension assets amount to twice Denmark’s GDP, which is more than four times the OECD average.
