A Candid CEO Insight into Saxo Bank’s Journey in Final saxocycling.com Film

HELLERUP, Denmark, July 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Behind every great team is a great leader with vision. In an intimate video portrait on saxocycling.com, Lars Seier Christensen, CEO and co-founder of Saxo Bank, the multi-asset online trading and investment specialist, speaks of his ambitions for the company and how he is grateful to be part of something he truly believes in.

This is the second of the two additional films featuring the co-founders and co-CEOs of Saxo Bank. Like the original 10 saxocycling.com films, which captured the spirit of Team Saxo-Tinkoff, this exclusive and intimate portrait of Lars Seier Christensen is directed by Jim Piercy and shot by Fredrik Clement. In the film, Lars Seier Christensen reveals his attitude to work and implies the business really is a labour of love: “Saxo Bank is my life’s work and I don’t think I ever get to do anything else as exciting as this.”

He explains how Saxo Bank is made up of great people and a great atmosphere, and that a strong internal culture and clear values make the difference between a good company and a great company.

Lars Seier Christensen says: “It is a tough business to stay ahead in but I think we have a very dedicated long-term vision of things. We invest continuously in building great systems not necessarily looking for an immediate pay-off.”

With a lot still to achieve, Lars Seier Christensen and co-founder Kim Fournais are completely focused on the future and do not spend too much time looking back.

In a direct quote from the film Lars Seier Christensen sets the tone for the future: “The ambition has always been to be the most professional facilitator in the market, we are building our own business but a lot of our business is about helping others succeed. Helping other financial institutions, helping clients achieve their goals. We see ourselves as a facilitator of other peoples’ ambitions.”
