Länsförsäkringar Hypotek: Interim Report January - March 2011

Länsförsäkringar continues to grow and capture market shares. Retail mortgages in the Swedish market are continuing to rise, although at a lower pace mainly due to higher market interest rates. The number of customers is increasing and more retail mortgage customers are choosing Länsförsäkringar as their primary bank. Net interest income and profitability strengthened during the period. Credit quality remains high with a low percentage of impaired loans and recoveries exceeding net loan losses. The liquidity situation is favourable and refinancing was very successful, says Göran Laurén, President of Länsförsäkringar Hypotek AB.

The period in brief

  • Loans rose 16% to SEK 82 billion (70).
  • Operating profit increased 48% to SEK 45 M (30).
  • Net interest income rose 82% to SEK 125 M (68).
  • Recoveries exceeded loan losses and amounted to SEK 1 M (2), net.
