Nordea

Nordea's CEO Christian Clausen told a newspaper that the bank considered dividends the best way to return capital to shareholders.

"But if we feel that the (Nordea) stock is not priced correctly or is under pressure from larger players selling off we might decide to buy it," he was quoted as saying in business daily Dagens Industri.

The dividend view was also stressed by Nordea chairman Bjorn Wahlroos in an interview with Reuters last week.
