Interim Report January-September 2017

”Länsförsäkringar Hypotek’s retail mortgage operations are continuing to perform strongly and we see an increase in the number of customers and higher market shares. We delivered a strong operating profit for the period and are further strengthening our market position. The strong local presence of the regional insurance companies and high customer satisfaction are the keys to the stable growth in lending. We are continuing to maintain our high credit quality and loan losses for the period remained unchanged at very low levels. The trend in housing prices remains a much debated issue and it is positive that the price trend now appears to have weakened slightly.” says Martin Rydin, President of Länsförsäkringar Hypotek.
