Nordnet AB (publ) today publishes its Year-end report 2023. The full report is available at www.nordnetab.com.

“The fourth quarter was good for both for Nordnet and private savers. The stock markets recovered over the last three months of the year due to slowing inflation and hopes that interest rates have peaked. During the quarter, 38,600 new savers chose Nordnet as their platform. At the start of 2024, our customers’ savings capital amounted to SEK 825 billion, a new record level. This record builds on continuous positive net savings, as well as rising Nordic stock markets. The value of our customers’ fund savings has risen by 28 percent over the past year. The positive momentum in savings, trading activity and customer growth has laid the foundation for financial growth with adjusted operating income for the quarter of SEK 1,189 million and adjusted operation profit of SEK 830 million – a new record high“, says Lars-Åke Norling, CEO of Nordnet.
