Nordnet’s Year-end Report January-December 2019

Today Nordnet publishes its Year-End Report for January-December 2019. The full report is available at nordnetab.com.

–   The fourth quarter became a positive and eventful time for Nordnet. We launched a new web service in the Swedish market and won “Small Business Bank of the Year”. We improved our loan offer by increasing the number of securities eligible as collateral, as well as introducing a new model for margin lending, according to which, well-diversified portfolios allow greater scope for borrowing, says Lars-Åke Norling, CEO at Nordnet.

–   Over the past three months, we have welcomed more than 31,000 new savers to our platform, our highest-ever organic growth in new customers for a single quarter. Our customer growth over the past 12 months amounts to a strong 19 percent. Our customers’ savings capital also reached a new high, ending the year at SEK 395 billion. The strong growth and high level of activity mean that we can present income in excess of SEK 400 million for the quarter, corresponding to 23 percent growth compared to the same period last year, says Lars-Åke Norling, CEO at Nordnet.
