Statement by the Group CEO2018 was a very active year, bringing good results. Solid growth was again recorded, in particular in the personal market. In the corporate market we achieved success with a strategy that makes us the natural choice of bank for small and medium-sized businesses in central Norway.
SpareBank 1 SMN achieved good results in 2018, and most business lines showed a positive trend. Of special note are a high influx of new retail customers, increased operating income and lower loan losses. The bank is also very well capitalised. The board of directors expects 2019 to be another good year.
