Prospects for the remainder of the year
The outlook for the global economy and the economy within the euro area are still favourable despite the fact that economic growth in the euro area has not quite reached up to the expectations in the second quarter. As a result of the good economic developments, the European central bank is gradually normalizing its monetary policy. In Finland, too, economic growth has been favourable. The economy has grown significantly on a broad front, employment has improved, the current account continued to show surplus and the confidence in the economy is good.
Economic development is also estimated in the near future be favorable despite the fact that the growth rate of the economy in Finland is projected to slow. The main risks in the near future has to do with the growing uncertainty in the financial markets, as well as with the political world. In the longer term, there is a risk that economic growth will be modest, unless the economy can be renewed enough when the population is ageing and the development is proceeding.
For the financial services industry has the world as a whole, been quite favourable. The low market interest rates have slowed the growth in the banks ‘net interest income and lower revenue from the insurance companies’ fixed-income investments, but also at the same time enhanced the customer kreditbetalningsförmåga. Impairment losses are very small. The most important strategic risks in the financial sector is associated currently with the change in customer behaviour, the digitalisation of the world, the competition outside of the traditional industry and the growing complexity of the regulation. Brytningsskedet in the industry threatens to in the next few years slow down the growth and break down the revenues. The financial industry stands in the next few years the face of a strong need to be renewed. Changes in the operating environment increases the importance of a long-term renewal and the importance of controlling the profitability and capital adequacy.
OP Företagsbankskoncernens profit before tax is expected to be approximately as large as 2017. The major uncertainties in the performance connects itself to the changes in the interest rate and placeringsmiljön, the development of the impairment losses, the rate of growth in the market, changes in the competitive environment and the effect of large claims on claims expenditure. The standard IFRS 9, which was introduced at the beginning of 2018, is expected to increase resultatvolatiliteten in the short term and immediately after the adoption reducing investment income.
All estimates presented in this interim report are based on the current views on the development of the world, OP Företagsbankskoncernen and its functions, and actual results may differ significantly.
