Bodil Nyboe Andersen is a Danish economist who was the governor of the National Bank of Denmark from 1995 to 2005. Daughter of Bilderberger Poul Nyboe Andersen, she attended 3 Bilderberg meetings herself, in 1997, 2000 and 2001. She is also a member of the [Trilateral Commission]].

She previously taught at the University of Copenhagen's Department of Economics and in 1981 served on the board of directors of Andelsbanken (later Unibank), where she became director.[1][2][3]

Early life and education

Born on 9 October 1940 in the Frederiksberg district of Copenhagen, Bodil Nyboe Andersen was the daughter of the economist and politician Poul Nyboe Andersen (1913–2004) and the teacher Edith (Ditte) Valborg Asmand Raben (1913–1993). After matriculating from Rungsted State School in 1959, she was one of just three women to study political science at the University of Copenhagen, graduating with flying colours in 1966.[1][3]

Career

Her first appointment was in the economic secretariat of the Ministry of Economic Affairs but when her father became minister in 1968, she moved to the economics department at the University of Copenhagen where she served as a member of the board. In 1981, she relieved her father of his position as director of Andelsbanken. Together with her colleague A.C. Jacobsen, she contributed to the bank's modernization and efficiency. In parallel, she served on the boards of the Danish Bankers Association (Bankforeningen) (1985–1990), Payment Business Service (Pengeinstitutternes Betalings Service) (1988–1990) and the Great Belt Fixed Link (Storebæltsforbindelsen) (1987–1991). Following Andelbanken's merger in 1990, she served on the board of Unidanmark and Unibank.[1]

Also in 1990, she moved to the National Bank, replacing Erik Hoffmeyer as governor in 1995. She held this position until 2005 and was prominent as an advocate of a Danish membership in European Monetary Union (EMU), which was criticized by EU skeptics who believed that the Governor of the National Bank, as an official, would avoid taking a stand for EMU.[4] The referendum on EMU in 2000 resulted in Denmark remaining outside monetary cooperation.
