Quote from Rikard Josefson, CEO Avanza
“Avanza delivered a stable profit despite a challenging macro environment. The net inflow in the quarter remained strong, which shows the competitiveness in Avanza’s offering and that our customers are still prioritising their savings despite tough times. The net inflow is the result of many individual customers’ persistent commitment to savings, and over time the net inflows are what will determine our success.”
