The Total outstanding loan balances (including credit card, personal loan and residential mortgage balances outstanding) in Finland grew at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.4% during 2014-18, to reach €132,419m ($151,692.28m). Growth was supported by rising private consumption and investment activity.
Residential mortgage outstanding balances accounted for 73.3% of the total balances outstanding in 2018, followed by personal loans (24.1%) and credit card outstanding balances outstanding (2.7%). Personal loan balances were the fastest-growing segment, at a review-period CAGR of 3.2%. However, lower projected economic growth is expected to negatively impact the total loan balances growth in the forecast period of 2019-23. OP Bank, Nordea and Danske Bank are the top three Finnish lenders. The decline in total balances may have a negative impact on their business.
The Finnish deposits market recorded a CAGR of 3.5% over 2014-2018, due to lower unemployment and higher gross household income. Finland’s gross household savings rate is the lowest (2018: 6.6%) when compared to Sweden, Denmark and Norway.
