Nordnet publishes annual and sustainability report for 2023

As of today, Friday 15 March 2024, Nordnet’s Annual and Sustainability Report for 2023 is available on the Group’s website www.nordnetab.com.

– 2023 turned out to be a good year for the stock market despite negative sentiment influenced by persistently high inflation, interest rate hikes, and general economic concerns for long periods. Nordnet concludes a strong year where the positive development in savings, trading activity, and customer growth lays the foundation for a good financial result. Revenues for the full year amount to over 4.5 billion and adjusted operating expenses to 1.3 billion SEK. The pre-tax profit for 2023 lands at close to 3.2 billion, which is a stronger result than ever before. The financial result combined with strong growth in customers and savings capital leads me to conclude that Nordnet’s operations have a positive development in terms of both customer-related and financial metrics, says Lars-Åke Norling, CEO of Nordnet.
