* Danske Bank offers a five-year package of benefits and services to members of Akava affiliates who have graduated within the last two years. The MasterCard Platinum and Priority Pass™ cards require a positive credit decision. The total value depends on the amount of benefits utilised.

** Effective annual interest rate of the Benefit loan. The reference rate is the 12-month Euribor rate to which 2.90 percentage points are added. This product is a one-time loan issued by Danske Bank. The effective annual interest rate is 3.88% based on credit of 5000 euros (15.12.2017). The estimated total payable amount of the credit for the entire credit period, including interest and costs, is 5506.93 euros based on credit of 5000 euros (15.12.2017). This includes invoicing fees of 2.50 euros/month over the five-year loan period totalling 150 euros. The estimated total payable amount of the credit and effective annual interest rate have been calculated assuming that the credit period is five years and that the credit is in use in its entirety, the interest on the credit and the fees and charges remain the same throughout the credit period and that the credit is repaid in 60 equal instalments at one-month intervals. The calculation takes into account expenses related to the establishment of credit, drawing of credit and repayment in accordance with the agreement. This is not a loan offer. An approved credit decision is always required before a loan can be granted. When making a credit decision, Danske Bank shall check the customer’s personal credit history with Suomen Asiakastieto Oy.
