Third Quarter Results 2018
COPENHAGEN, Oct. 24, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
Nordea Bank Abp – Stock exchange release – Interim report (Q1 and Q3)
Third Quarter Results 2018
CEO Casper von Koskull's comments on the results:
"Third quarter was challenging, and we are not satisfied with the revenue development. Net interest income was stable, while fees and commission and specifically net fair value were weak, mainly due to difficult market conditions and lower corporate activity.
However, we continued to deliver on costs, credit quality remained strong and capital ratios improved to an all-time high.
Our customer satisfaction improved for the third consecutive quarter, especially in Sweden. Lending volumes are growing, and we see a more promising deal flow pipeline going into the fourth quarter.
This quarter was a historic quarter for Nordea, as we finalised our re-domiciliation into the Banking Union and Finland. The move is part of Nordea's overall strategic direction, enabling us to operate in an environment that offers stability, predictability and a level playing field. The business model for the Group will not be impacted by the move, but it will help us to increase our focus on further developing the bank, and becoming an even better bank for Nordea's customers, employees and shareholders.
On 13 September Nordea and DNB announced that Blackstone will acquire 60% of all shares in Luminor. Over the coming years, Nordea will sell its remaining 20% shares to Blackstone. On 15 October, the divestment of our Luxembourg-based private banking business was finalised.
I can say that Nordea is now repositioned to be a truly Nordic- focused bank with a very clear and simple structure, and a record-strong balance sheet, enabling us to be an even better bank for our customers while at the same time structurally bringing down costs and increasing efficiency."

When people get to make a choice between competing apps, they will be able to choose the best app for their use, and not just the app that is presented as the system default, “ said Krystian Kolondra, EVP Opera browsers, “We believe this step on Android can help Europeans more easily discover and choose
