Outlook 2017

The outlook has been revised.

We expect net interest income to be higher than in 2016, as we will benefit from volume growth and lower funding costs.

Net fee income is expected to be higher than in 2016, subject to customer activity. Net trading income and Other income are expected to be less impacted by positive special items compared to 2016. Expenses are expected to be around the level in 2016. Loan impairments are expected to remain low.

We now expect net profit for 2017 to be in the range of DKK 19-21 billion. This is due to higher-than-expected income in all major income lines and lower loan impairment charges in the first nine months of 2017.

We previously expected net profit to be in the range of DKK 18-20 billion.

The outlook is subject to uncertainty and macroeconomic developments.

We maintain our longer-term ambition for a return on shareholders’ equity of at least 12.5%.
