• Operating income increased by 95.9 % (10.6 %) to SEK 249.4 million (SEK 127.3 m). • The profit after tax was SEK 100.2 million (SEK 43.1 m). • Earnings per share increased to SEK 3.65 (SEK 1.59). • Net deposits totalled SEK 3,930 million (SEK 2,340 m), corresponding to 13.2 % (14.4 %) of the total value of custodian accounts at the beginning of the year. Comments from the Managing Director ”During the spring we launched Avanza Zero – Sweden’s first index fund without charges. With Avanza Zero, there is more over for the customer – for example, in the long term it can give double the amount of pension. For Avanza, the fund is a price leader that shows the great advantages of Avanza and creates good opportunities for additional sales. Up until now, 3,600 investors have invested SEK 80 million in Avanza Zero. We are convinced that Avanza Zero will be an important growth engine, especially in the broader segments of investors”, says Nicklas Storåkers, Managing Director of Avanza. ”Demand for Avanza’s occupational pension has been stronger than expected. At the same time, the selling-in time is long. But just three months after launch over 40 companies have joined, and in total, the capital in the occupational pension amounts to SEK 15 million. The total capital in Avanza’s pension products has increased since the turn of the year by 39 per cent to SEK 3,400 million.” ”Much has happened in the market during the second quarter. The strong stock market upturn was followed in May by a rapid, strong downward adjustment. During the downward trend, activity reached record proportions, and investors made net sales of shares and reduced their holdings in such things as Russia and Asia funds.” For additional information, please contact Nicklas Storåkers, Managing Director of Avanza, telephone: +46 70 861 80 01.
