Länsförsäkringar Hypotek: January – December 2021
"Länsförsäkringar’s retail mortgage operations continued to perform well in 2021. Operating profit was positive, driven by a favourable trend in net interest income. Growth in lending continued during the year, although the market was slightly more challenging given the prevailing fierce competition. We are continuing to work intensively following our strategy and Länsförsäkringar’s banking operations has implemented several initiatives that will develop business, both locally and through our digital channels. 2021 was largely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, which continued to have a tangible effect on society at large as well as on the housing market, where we have seen a clear continuing strong demand for larger residential properties both in and outside the large cities. Housing prices reached new record-breaking levels during the year while housing construction accelerated further in 2021.”, says Anders Borgcrantz, President of Länsförsäkringar Hypotek.

- Operating profit increased 6% to SEK 1,433 M (1,348) and the return on equity amounted to 8.2% (8.2).
