** A capital of 0.4 SEK billion was transferred to Söderberg & Partners from Nordnet during May as a result of the reduced partner cooperation. A total of SEK 9.9 billion related to Söderberg & Partners has been transferred from Nordnet. 
*** Nordnet launched mortgage in April 2016. The lending volume is published in May 2016 for the first time, which is why no comparison data is available. 

 In general, May was a good month on the Nordic stock exchanges. The Nordic indices showed positive development despite uncertainties in the market, such as Britain’s upcoming EU referendum with the risk of Brexit. Nordnet’s customers’ savings capital amounts to SEK 205 billion, which is the highest level in our history, says Håkan Nyberg, CEO of Nordnet.
