Nordic Banks – Nordbi Tue, 26 Oct 2021 23:04:32 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Nordic Banks – Nordbi 32 32 GlobalCapital launches syndicated loans and leveraged finance awards poll for 2021 Tue, 26 Oct 2021 16:04:20 +0000

GlobalCapital’s Loan Awards are the only full scale awards for the loan market in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and the only ones based on a poll of market participants. This ensures that they truly reflect the opinion of the market, and is the reason for the longstanding support they enjoy.

We invite you to vote to determine the Awards via this online poll. The deadline for submissions is Friday, November 19.

In each category, the three or four nominees with the most votes will be published in December, and the complete results including the winners will be revealed in February, alongside awards for the private debt markets.

GlobalCapital has added awards this year to recognise the strides the syndicated loan and leveraged finance markets have made towards sustainable finance.

The rules of the poll are:

Banks, borrowers, investors, law firms, private equity firms and other market participants may vote. One vote is allowed per firm in each category.

You cannot win in a category in which you do not vote.

Banks and investors can vote for deals in which they are arrangers or lenders, but borrowers may not vote for their own deals. No firm can vote for itself as an institution or for an institutional award.

Canvassing for votes is forbidden, as is discussing your votes with others outside your firm.

Voting according to your true opinion of what was the most deserving winner is very important: if you do not win a particular award, you would rather a deserving candidate won, than an undeserving one.

We hope you enjoy the poll, and we would be happy to answer any questions. Please email, if any questions arise.

Crowdcube Reports £3 Million in Revenue for Q3, Works on European Expansion in Advance of New EU Crowdfunding Rules Mon, 25 Oct 2021 15:03:34 +0000

Crowdcube, a leading investment crowdfunding platform operating in the UK and continental Europe, has posted an update on platform performance. According to CEO and founder Darren Westlake, Crowdcube generated £3 million in top-line revenue during Q3 – down slightly from the £3.2 million generated in Q2. Westlake said this number was on track and typically they experience a slight decline in securities offerings during the summer. Westlake did not mention the net loss nor profit for the firm. Westlake did mention they have seen strong investment activity on the platform since they started taking carry, similar to what VCs do, creating further value for our shareholders. By charging carry, Crowdcube should be better positioned to generate a net income as funded firms become successful.

Westlake reported 45 businesses were funded during the quarter raising £46 million. These firms were located in both the UK and Europe.

Next month, new rules will start in the European Union enabling issuers to raise up to €5 million from all member states. Crowdcube and other online investment platforms are working to take advantage of these harmonized rules.

Westlake said they have hired Pauline Pham as France country manager and are looking to boost their team in Berlin (for DACH) while hiring “great talent” in the Nordic region.

Platform updates include a path for funded companies that list on a stock exchange to involve their community and retail investors.

“We ensure our company records are updated, and investors are emailed and offered the opportunity to view, monitor and buy/sell publicly listed shares from their Crowdcube portfolio via a General Investment Account (GIA) (through our partnership with Seccl). We have continued to build market presence and positioning with key IPO stakeholders across the banks and advisory firms, as well as investing in broader public advocacy around retail investor inclusion at the point a company goes public,” said Westlake.

Challenges for the firm include the “scarcity of talent and an inflationary wage market.”

Volvo Cars confirms Sweden IPO Fri, 22 Oct 2021 14:59:26 +0000

Volvo will begin trading at the Nasdaq Stockholm stock exchange on 28 October. Photo: Kristoffer Tripplaar/Sipa USA

Volvo Cars, owned by Chinese company Geely, intends to once again float on the stock exchange after 20 years with a listing in Sweden later this month.

Its shares will begin trading at the Nasdaq Stockholm stock exchange on 28 October.

The company said it will offer shares at 53 Swedish kronor to 68 kronor each in a move that is expected to raise nearly $3bn and value the automaker at up to $2bn.

The initial public offering (IPO) is set to be Europe’s largest since January, as per data compiled by Bloomberg.

Geely, which bought Volvo Cars in 2010 from Ford (F), had indicated to banks and investors earlier that it was preparing an IPO. it will continue as the Swedish company’s main owner.

Volvo CEO Hakan Samuelsson said the company was looking for small private investors in Sweden to take an opportunity to buy shares of Volvo Cars.

“I think we have a very strong interest especially from the Nordic investors,” he told a news conference.

The carmaker has ambitious goals to sell only full electric cars by 2030. It hopes to use funds from the IPO to boost its car-making capacity so it can nearly double annual sales to more than 1.2 million vehicles. 

It also has plans to construct a battery plant in Europe.

“We have a very clear strategy to be an electric company in 2030 and we’ve been on that journey for some years now,” said Samuelsson. 

“With this, of course, we can secure that transformation, because of course, it’s not free of charge.”

In 2018, Volvo postponed IPO plans due to trade tensions and a decline in automotive stocks. Reportedly investors were said to be shocked at its valuation expectations of as much as $30bn.

Meanwhile, electric-car maker Polestar, owned by Geely and Volvo, last month said it will go public by merging with a US-listed special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) at an enterprise value of $20bn.

Nordea Direct Bank – Interim Report, 3rd quarter 2021



(Previous year comparable figures for the company are shown in brackets)

Nordea Direct Bank ASA is a wholly owned subsidiary of Nordea Bank Abp. The bank was established in 2007 and has administrative offices in Oslo and Førde.

The merger between Nordea Direct Bank ASA and Nordea Bank Abp is ongoing and the target completion date is 1 November 2022. Completion is subject to regulatory approval.

Income statement

Operating profit was NOK 322.6m (NOK 148.7m). The increase was a result of improved gains from financial instruments, one time bookings on the total Income, as well as improved write-down and losses.

Total income amounted to NOK 562.4m (NOK 493.4m).

Net interest income amounted to NOK 533.7m (NOK 532.3m). The positive effect of the portfolio growth was offset by the decreased net interest margin.

Net commission income and other income amounted to NOK 28.7m (NOK 38.8m). The increase was primarily driven by gains on financial instruments and a one-time booking related to a portfolio of pre-paid cards. The one-time booking relates to the closing of pre-paid cards issued by Gjensidige Bank ASA (now Nordea Direct Bank ASA) for a third party. The prepaid cards have expired already before the acquisition of Gjensidige Bank ASA by Nordea Bank Abp and the board decided to write-off the balance of these cards, in close dialogue with the third party and after taking all necessary steps to pay out customer dues.

Net interest margin1 was 1.26% (1.36%). The change in the portfolio composition led to a decrease in the rate.

Operating expenses were NOK 225.2m (NOK 217.5m).

The cost/income ratio was 40.0% (44.1%), a result of improved total Income.

Total write-downs and losses amounted to NOK 14.5m (NOK 127.2m). Three main factors contributed to the decrease: the sale of an unsecured lending portfolio at the end of 2020, tightening of credit rules during 2020 as well as improved economic outlook.

The development of the collective loan loss allowance is correlated with the development of the economic outlook. During the second quarter of 2021, the economic outlook improved, indicating a release of the allowance. Covid-19 still creates an uncertain environment and can have unexpected effects. In addition, a set of new models for calculating the collective loan loss allowance is under development. Considering the early stage, the effect they will have on the collective loan loss allowance was still unk- nown. With these two arguments in mind, the bank passed on a management judgement that mitigated the positive impact of the release. The bank also partially released the management judgement build in the second quarter of 2020. The release was related to forbearance, which was not included in the model for collective loan loss allowance at that time. During 2021, the model was updated to take forbearance into consideration and therefore the management judgement was released.

In the third quarter of 2021, the collective loan loss allowance increased due to the portfolio perfor- mance. The bank kept the level of the management judgement unchanged and will evaluate the next steps before year-end closing.

Write-downs and losses were 0.04% (0.37%) of average gross lending. The decrease was driven by lower write-downs and losses following the delinquent portfolio sale, tightened credit rules and the economic outlook, as well as the change in the portfolio composition.

Gross lending in default over 90 days decreased to NOK 197.2m (NOK 712.5m). As a result, gross loans in default over 90 days were 0.37% (1.41%) of total gross lending.

Nordea Direct Bank -Interim Report, 3rd quarter 2021


The weighted average loan-to-value ratio2 was estimated to be 61.6% (61.4%) for the mortgage portfo- lio.

Lending and deposits growth

Gross lending increased by 4.4% and amounted to NOK 52,654.5m (NOK 50,448.0m) as of 30 September 2021. The growth was due to the bank entering an agreement with The Confederation of Unions for Professionals (UNIO), the second biggest labour union in Norway, during 2020. The favourable situation on the property market also contributed to the development. During the second quarter of 2021, the bank sold all the lending contracts with its agriculture customers and also transferred most of their outstanding relationships. Deposits decreased by 8.7%, reaching NOK 13,855.9m (NOK 15,180.0m).

Capital position

As of 30 September 2021, the Nordea Direct Bank Group had a capital adequacy ratio of 19.1% (18.5%). The total capital held by the bank was NOK 4,270.7m (NOK 4,149.3m), of which NOK 4,025.8m (NOK 33,804.5m) was common equity Tier 1 capital. The common equity Tier 1 capital ratio was 18.0% (16.9%).


Nordea Direct Bank ASA and its subsidiary Nordea Direct Boligkreditt AS had a long-term and short- term counterparty credit rating of AA-/A-1+. The covered bonds portfolio issued by Nordea Direct Boligkreditt AS had a long-term rating of AAA.

Nordea Direct Boligkreditt AS will hold the amount of over-collateralisation required to maintain the current rating for Nordea Direct Boligkreditt AS`s covered bond program.

Debt securities issued

Net issues of debt securities, including subordinated loan capital, amounted to NOK 16.317.0m (NOK 22.365.7) as of 30 September 2021. The total face value of the securities issued by the bank was NOK 16,246.5m.

Repayments through ordinary maturity and buy back of bonds from investors were NOK 4,711.0m in the period.


As of 30 September 2021, Nordea Direct Bank Group had net liquid assets of NOK 4,656.9m, divided between NOK 183.8m in bank deposits and NOK 4,473.1m in debt securities. Nordea Direct Bank Group had no longer any investments in the covered bonds issued by Nordea Direct Boligkreditt AS. The net liquid assets were at an ade¬quate level that covers the bond debt that is due in the next 7 months.

Norwegian financial institutions are required to maintain a Liquidity Coverage Ratio (LCR) on 100 %, in order to be able to cover net liquidity outflow during periods with limited access to market funding. The LCR for Nordea Direct Bank Group was 319% (292%) at end of third quarter.

1 The net interest margin is calculated as net interest income as a percentage of average total assets, annualised.

2 The loan-to-value ratio estimate is calculated on the basis of the exposure on the reporting date and the property valuation, including any higher priority pledge(s), at the time the loan was approved.

Covid-19 Measures

During September 2021 Norway saw the society opening up due to the good progress of the vaccination programme run by the Norwegian authorities. Considering the development, Nordea Direct Bank ASA no longer sees the need or special measures and follow-ups due to Covid-19. The bank will continue to monitor the overall economic situation for any unexpected developments that could have negative impact on its operations.

Organisation changes

During November 2021, a large share of the Nordea Direct Bank ASA organisation will be moved into Nordea Bank Abp. In order to secure stable operations for the bank, Nordea Bank Abp will provide the services performed by the departments moved and the relationship will be governed through intragroup agreements between the two legal entities.

Events after the balance sheet date

No significant events have occurred after the end of the quarter.

Nordic optical IPO’s fortune is tied to EssiLux Wed, 20 Oct 2021 16:01:09 +0000


(The author is a Reuters Breakingviews columnist. The opinions expressed are their own.)

MILAN (Reuters Breakingviews) – Glasses and lenses retailer Synsam is being suitably modest. The Scandinavian optician, which runs 490 stores, is listing its shares at between 46 and 56 Swedish crowns each. The top of that range gives a market value of 8.4 billion Swedish crowns, or close to $1 billion. Including debt, that’s roughly 9 times its projected 2022 EBITDA of 1.3 billion Swedish crowns, in line with Dutch retailer GrandVision, a rival in the hypercompetitive Nordic market.

Synsam hopes its well-oiled subscription model will expand annual sales by 12% and boost EBITDA margins to above 25%. Yet it’s not the only one in that game. Furthermore, $86 billion market leader EssilorLuxottica, which is buying GrandVision, is a worry. While eyewear distribution is fragmented, suppliers of glasses are harder to find. Even though Synsam sells some in-house models, Leonardo Del Vecchio’s giant is a major producer of lenses and branded frames. Where EssilorLuxottica goes, Synsam will likely follow. (By Lisa Jucca)

Global Digital Lending Market (2021 to 2026) Tue, 19 Oct 2021 09:43:00 +0000

Dublin, Oct. 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Digital Lending Market by Offering (Solutions (Digital Lending Platforms and Point Solutions) and Services), Deployment Mode (Cloud and On-Premises), End User (Banks, Credit Unions, and NBFCs), and Region – Global Forecast to 2026” report has been added to’s offering.

The global Digital Lending Market size to grow from USD 10.7 billion in 2021 to USD 20.5 billion by 2026, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 13.8% during the forecast period.

The growing demand for digital lending platforms among SMEs to drive the Digital Lending market. Digital lending enables SMEs to research various lenders and the terms they are offering and choose the best option. It also reduces the time for loan disbursement from 2-3 months in case of offline lending to just 2-3 days. This is crucial for SMEs as it helps them meet the working capital needs to facilitate smooth operations.

By Services, the Support and Maintenance segment to grow at the higher CAGR during the forecast period.

By Services, the Support and Maintenance segment is expected to grow at a higher growth rate during the forecast period. Support and maintenance services include assistance related to the implementation and the use of digital lending solutions. Support and maintenance services help in the resolution of the lender’s queries pertaining to digital lending solutions. Support and maintenance teams help organizations reap the maximum benefits from the investments made to implement digital lending solutions.

By Solutions, the Point Solutions segment to hold the larger market size during the forecast period.

The Point Solutions segment is expected to hold a larger market size. Point Solutions refer to the solutions offered to address a single section of the entire loan processing life cycle. Point solution providers specialize in overcoming specific use cases or challenges that the users face during the loan application process, providing more flexibility to meet their needs.

By End User, NBFCs segment to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

The Non-banking Financial Companies (NBFCs) segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Since NBFCs usually don’t have a large distribution network, they are going digital to have a chance to reach out to a larger customer base, even in tier 2 and tier 3 cities. This adaptation of digital lending has improved the quality of decision-making for NBFCs.

Pandemic takes its toll on custody scores Fri, 15 Oct 2021 12:17:30 +0000

A global survey of over 800 custody clients shows that over the past year appreciation levels of the job sub-custodians are doing have dropped. That said, in the vast bulk of markets, service expectations appear to have been met, though what people are paying for them is a different story.

The accompanying table shows global average scores for various categories of service. After a few years of improving results, these are now back to their traditional position, where 5.00 to 5.99 represents ‘Good’, but not ‘Exciting’. Pricing is on the cusp between Good and Satisfactory. 

The Global Custodian Agent Bank Surveys – major, emerging and frontier – are designed to elicit the views and perceptions of cross-border investors about the post-trade services they receive in markets around the world. They have been conducted annually since 1989.  

The Agent Banks in Major Markets (ABMM) Survey focuses primarily on those markets categorised as developed by MSCI and S&P. Network managers and operations executives from leading global custodians, correspondent banks, brokers, infrastructure providers and asset managers are invited to evaluate the performance of their agent banks. 

The questionnaire was revamped for 2021. Completed online, it included 13 service categories. A scorecard allowed respondents to rate each category on a seven-point scale from Unacceptable to Excellent. Responses were converted by the survey system into numbers with 1 being Unacceptable and 7 being Excellent. 

The survey once again confirmed a trend to more regional relationships and a growing dominance of regional providers in most major markets. Leading the way in that regard is the Nordic region, the individual markets of which have been grouped under a regional umbrella. 

The full survey report is in the latest edition of Global Custodian released last week and is available to subscribers. For more information contact

Danske Bank Staying Bullish with 1.20 Target Thu, 14 Oct 2021 05:52:44 +0000

  • GBP/EUR reference rates at publication:
  • Spot: 1.1790
  • Bank transfers (indicative guide): 1.1480-1.1562
  • Money transfer specialist rates (indicative): 1.1686-1.17333

Nordic lender and investment bank Danske says they hold a bullish Pound to Euro exchange rate forecast on an expectation the Bank of England is to soon begin tightening monetary policy.

“We expect the UK recovery to continue although delta still creates uncertainty about the outlook,” says Jens Nærvig Pedersen, Chief Analyst at Danske Bank. “We remain bullish on GBP”.

The call comes a day after the ONS reported the UK economy returned to growth in August, helped by a boost to industrial production and expansion in the all-important services sector.

It also comes as the Pound-Euro exchange rate attempts to break above the 1.18 level, a feat it has so far failed to accomplish despite five successive days of trying:

Rallies in the Pound continue to be sold into around the 1.18 level, courtesy in part to the significant amount of orders layered around this round number.

A break above 1.18 could well open the door to cleaner air until the next round-number resistance at 1.19, although alert orders set with Pound Sterling Live suggest 1.20 is the next major level of interest for deliverables market participants.

From a fundamental perspective Danske Bank are of the view that all the above-mentioned levels will ultimately fall over the duration of the coming 12 months.

Nevertheless progress could be slow for those watching the market for higher rates.

Likewise, it offers some breathing space to exporters and those looking to bring funds into the UK.

Analysts are of the view the Bank of England’s move towards raising interest rates is the single most important factor in driving demand for the Pound at present, although some argue the Bank is at risk of making a mistake by raising rates.

The argument goes that raising interest rates when the growth outlook is subdued could in fact hamper future growth, making the Bank of England guilty of committing a policy mistake.

Money markets suggested as of Wednesday afternoon there were was a hefty 100 basis points of hikes lined up for the UK between now and the end of 2022.

Such a hike in the cost of borrowing when the growth outlook is subdued could in fact hamper future growth, hence the Bank of England could stand guilty of committing a policy mistake.

“There is no shortage of commentators, including ourselves, warning that this pace of rate hikes in the UK could place too much of a burden on the consumer in the current environment,” says Jane Foley, Senior FX Strategist at Rabobank.

But Danske Bank see the Bank of England rate hike story as a supportive one.

“Like the Fed, the Bank of England (BoE) is about to start tightening monetary policy. QE bond buying is set to end by the end of the year and since our last update, investors have started to price in more aggressive rate hikes from the BoE,” says Pedersen.

Danske are also bullish on the Dollar’s prospects as they see the Federal Reserve raising interest rates in 2022.

“We remain bullish on GBP as the USD-positive environment is usually also benefitting GBP,” says Pedersen.

Danske Bank forecast the Euro-Pound exchange rate to move lower and they hold a point forecast at 0.83 in 12 months.

This gives a Pound-Euro target of ~1.2050.

Pedersen says a risk to the forecast is a hit to global risk sentiment and/or if Bank of England keeps monetary policy accommodative for longer than currently expected.

This reflects the Pound’s sensitivity to substantial stock market sell-offs where the likes of the Euro and Dollar tend to benefit from repatriation flows.

Recall, the all-time low in GBP/EUR came not after the Brexit vote but during the 2008 financial crisis.

Regarding the issue of surging UK inflation, Danske Bank says the impact on the UK could be more acute than for the Eurozone.

Another potential concern for the Pound is that EU-UK tensions increase.

The EU and UK are currently laying out their stalls ahead of further negotiations on the issue of the Northern Ireland protocol, where failure to arrive at a consensus could see the UK trigger Article 16 of the protocol.

This would effectively allow the UK to autonomously suspend elements of the agreement, thereby raising risks of retaliation from the EU.

“It is increasingly expected that the UK will trigger Article 16 over the NI protocol,” says Marek Raczko, an analyst at Barclays.

“Such actions can impact the wider Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA), trigger retaliation measures by the EU, including tariffs or the suspension of parts of the treaty,” he adds.

He sees further potential options exercised by the EU being the launch of infringement proceedings with the European Court of Justice, or dispute settlement proceedings with an arbitration panel.

“Any of the above is likely to significantly weigh on GBP,” says Raczko.
