SEB's second quarter 2021 result

The operating profit for the second quarter 2021 amounted to SEK 7.9bn with a return on equity of 14.7 per cent and a Common Equity Tier 1 capital ratio of 21.1 per cent.

“Our solid result reflects the signs of economic recovery and return of confidence among both corporates and households. Corporate customers were active, particularly within investment banking and equity capital markets. We also noted higher activity among private customers in most areas, including payments and savings. We have a strong capital position with a management capital buffer of 860 basis points. With net expected credit losses at zero basis points in the second quarter, we now foresee that the total for the full year of 2021 will be below the 8-10 basis points previously indicated” says Johan Torgeby, President and CEO.
