Länsförsäkringar Hypotek: Interim report January–September 2015

“Länsförsäkringar Hypotek continued its stable growth in the third quarter. Business volumes and operating profit performed very well, at the same time as we had good control of costs. We are closely following the trend in housing prices together with the rising indebtedness of households. Several measures will probably be needed from society, particularly to increase the construction of new housing.” says Anders Borgcrantz, President of Länsförsäkringar Hypotek.
