The great interest in savings and a strong digitalization trend where consumers choose savings platforms instead of traditional players, in combination with Nordnet’s modernized offer, has led to record figures across the board.

With strong revenue growth and an unchanged cost level, Nordnet achieves an adjusted operating profit of SEK 1.6 billion for the full year, says Lars-Åke Norling, CEO of Nordnet.
