(Reuters) - Nordic banking group Nordea <NDAFI.HE> said on Monday it has agreed to acquire the occupational and individual pension portfolios from Frende Livsforsikring AS for an undisclosed sum.

Frende's occupational and individual pension portfolios have total unit-linked assets of 4.2 billion Norwegian crowns (£356.94 million), and it has around 5,600 corporate customers representing around 32,000 individual policyholders.

Nordea said as part of the deal it will also enter into a long-term agreement to distribute pension products with the Norwegian savings banks that own Frende.

"They have a solid position in the Norwegian market, and together we can offer a full suite of pension products to both corporations and individuals," Sorre Storset, head of Nordea's Asset & Wealth Management, said in a statement.
