Regulatory authorities have clearly signalled stricter capital requirements for
Norwegian banks. At the same time the authorities have signalled significantly
increased risk weighting of retail mortgages, which will affect both existing
and new mortgages issued by Norwegian banks.
On this basis, SpareBank 1 SR-Bank has decided to increase its lending rates
both to private clients, corporate clients and agricultural customers.
For retail mortgage customers floating rate loans will increase up to 0.30%. The
new prices will apply for new mortgages from 12 March and for existing mortgages
from the beginning of May.
