The conservative newspaper Berlingske has listed the 100 wealthiest families in DK. They are on the list represented by the head of the family business.

The tabloid BT (they belong to the same publishing house BTW) have had a closer look at the list. That's fairly uninteresting to most here, but I have had a look at the names and many are very discreet and some are very close to the DRF.
Among the top ten families listed in the link above are:
Kirk Johansen, who owns Lego. They are close to the DRF, perhaps in particular Joachim, but also Frederik.
Lars Larsen, who owns Jysk, has become closer to Frederik due to their common interest in golf (Mary plays golf often too BTW, but where and when seems to be a well guarded thing). Frederik has on several occasions help promote an international golf tournament in DK, which Lars Larsen is the mastermind behind.
Hanni Kasprzak, who heads the Ecco shoes family. At least has been close to Joachim, and is still close to Alexandra. She supports Ecco events.
The Clausen family, who own Danfoss, are very close to Joachim. especially due to their common affiliation to Southern Jutland.
The Mærsk family. Mærsk McKinney Møller, was very close to the Regent Couple. After his death the family are still in the inner circle around the Regent Couple.
Further down are three names that have entered the list. And among them are Johan Wedell-Wedellsborg. Very close to Joachim but also M&F. The Wedell family is as most of you know by now, omnipresent in regards to the DRF.
If we look at the total list, we find at #30, Christian Stadil. He is close to Alexandra. And indeed after the sale at her house she is now renting a very large apartment owned by Stadil. - And no doubt at a favorable rent.
The families de Linde and Holstein-Holsteinsborg are established noble families, who at least to some extent have had or have some association with the DRF.
Most of the names would be totally unknown to most Danes. Discretion is a virtue when money is simply something you have.
I would not be the least surprised if the DRF, and again very much Joachim, are close to several more names on the list. I'm simply unaware of it.
While the wealthiest families do not necessarily rub shoulders many of them know each other at least professionally and since Joachim is close to some of the most wealthy and influential, he does have connections. So unless he is very irresponsible I think his fortune is secure and the inheritance of his children is secure. And career-wise his children may very well find their future jobs in companies owned by the people listed here.
It happens that the DRF borrow a company jet when they want to go somewhere very discreetly or borrow a yacht.
On the other hand when the DRF is abroad somewhere they inevitably help promote Danish businesses, many of them owned by the people listed here.
There have been some critical voices expressing concern about the DRF being involved with some of the most powerful business-families in DK. (The DRF tend to avoid rubbing shoulders with politicians privately). But there is very little concern among the general public. The DRF help promoting Danish businesses, which is good for the export, which again creates jobs and generate income to the state.
DK is after all a very old merchant nation and as such there is a good deal of "trader of used-horses mentality" ingrained in us. So while it's my impression that say the BRF wouldn't be able to do the same, it's generally accepted in DK. - That's how the system works. - Not least the further west in DK you go; You paint my garage, I give you half a pig for the freezer. Receipts? What's that?
