Abstract
The ratings on the banking operations of Nordic financial services group Nordea reflect the group's consistent strategy, which has resulted in successful integration; Nordea group's relatively solid earnings from its core banking operations; and well-diversified funding profile. The group's capitalization is adequate given its current risk profile, in Standard & Poor's Ratings Services' view. We believe Nordea is well positioned to benefit from a normalization of interest rates over the next two years as the current economic expansion in Sweden, Norway, and Finland continues.

Private and public investment activities are likely to remain subdued...
