 JANUARY – JUNE 2020 COMPARED WITH JANUARY – JUNE 2019

Stadshypotek’s operating profit rose by SEK 77m, or 1%, to SEK 6,329m. (6,252). Net interest income grew by SEK 337m to SEK 7,276m (6,939). This is mainly due to higher lending volumes to the private and corporate markets in Sweden.

Of the net interest income, SEK 404m (424) was attributable to the branch in Norway, SEK 250m (226) to the branch in Finland and SEK 275m (267) to the branch in Denmark.

Expenses increased by SEK 190m to SEK -900m (-710). This increase was mainly attributable to an increase in the sales compensation paid to the parent company for the services performed by the branch office operations on behalf of Stadshypotek in relation to the administration and sale of mortgage loans, which is driven chiefly by an increase in business volumes.
