Quote from Rikard Josefson, CEO Avanza
“Macroeconomic conditions remain challenging. Despite this, we are reporting our second strongest quarter ever. Recurring monthly savings were stable and contributed to a strong net inflow that for the nine-month period was more than twice as high as for the full-year 2022. Stock market volatility was low, which affects our trading income. We can’t do anything about market sentiment, but customers are continuing to buy securities on a net basis and Avanza’s market shares on the Stockholm Stock Exchange are rising. This makes Avanza strongly positioned once optimism returns.”
