Swedbank 2010

Swedbank’s profit amounted to SEK 7.4bn in 2010. This is an increase of SEK 18bn compared with 2009. The improvement was mainly due to significantly lower credit impairments in the Baltic countries, Russia and Ukraine. During the second half of 2010 higher interest rates had a positive impact on Swedbank’s net interest income.

President's statement

Michael Wolf


Prior to 2010 we expected a gradually rising profit trend. In fact, we now see that profit for the full-year was stronger than anticipated, largely thanks to the recovery in the Baltic countries, which resulted in significantly lower credit impairments.
