The US labour market performed strongly with higher employment figures and falling unemployment, while inflation remained low. Expectations of the Federal Reserve raising key interest rates were postponed until the autumn. The European economy also revealed glimmers of hope, for example, with higher confidence among households and companies. The ECB continued its bond-buying stimulus scheme to support economic recovery and inflation. However, focus during the quarter was increasingly directed to developments in Greece where negotiations on new bail-out packages with creditors broke down, resulting in Greece defaulting on a payment to the IMF on 30. Developments to date have led only to relatively limited market fluctuations. The Swedish economy continued to perform well during the quarter. GDP growth was higher and employment continued to grow strongly, although unemployment remained at high levels. Salary and inflation expectations remained low, while inflation was slightly higher than anticipated. The SEK performed more strongly than Riksbank forecasts, which, combined with increased uncertainty in the economic environment driven by the situation in Greece, resulted in the Riksbank lowering the key interest rate by 0.10 percentage points to -0.35% at its monetary policy meeting on 2 July. At the same time, the Riksbank announced that it would expand its purchase of government bonds by a further SEK 45 bn. Housing prices continued to rise. During the second quarter, prices of single-family homes increased 2% compared with the first quarter according to Statistics Sweden, and compared with the yearearlier period prices were up 8%. Long-term bond interest rates increased relatively sharply until mid- when concern regarding Greece escalated. Rising bond interest rates had a negative impact on stock-market performance and credit spreads generally broadened during the quarter. The spread for a five-year Swedish covered bond expanded by approximately 25 points and the interest difference with government bonds increased even more. Housing prices in Sweden rose 1.1% during the second quarter. According to Valueguard s HOX index, prices of singlefamily homes rose 1.3%, while prices of tenant-owned apartments increased 0.7%. JANUARY-JUNE COMPARED WITH JANUARY-JUNE Increased business volumes Business volumes rose 13%, or SEK 44.0 bn, to SEK bn (334.2). Lending increased 14%, or SEK 24.0 bn, to SEK bn (167.2), with continued high credit quality. Retail mortgages in Länsförsäkringar Hypotek rose 17%, or SEK 20.3 bn, to SEK bn (116.7). Deposits increased 8%, or SEK 5.5 bn, to SEK 78.3 bn (72.8). The volume of managed funds increased 17%, or SEK 15.8 bn, to SEK bn (94.2). The increase was due to healthy net flows and positive growth in value. High inflow of customers The number of customers increased 4% to 943,000 (906,000). The number of customers with Länsförsäkringar as their primary bank increased 9% to 365,000 (335,000) and the number of products per customer amounted to 5.0 (4.9).

NET INTEREST INCOME 1,600 1,400 1,200 1, Income Operating income rose 13% to SEK 1,323 M (1,168), primarily due to higher net interest income. Net interest income increased 17% to SEK 1,411 M (1,208), attributable to higher volumes and improved margins. Net gains from financial items amounted to SEK 62 M (42). Commission income increased 22% to SEK 767 M (630) due to higher income in the fund business. Net commission amounted to an expense of SEK 200 M ( 134). Expenses Operating expenses including impairment amounted to SEK 763 M (765). Operating expenses excluding impairment increased 6% to SEK 733 M (690). The increase was primarily due to the fund company s higher administration costs related to increased volumes that totalled SEK 101 M (73). The cost/income ratio excluding impairment amounted to 0.55 (0.59) before loan losses and to 0.55 (0.57) after loan losses. The cost/income ratio was 0.58 (0.65) before loan losses and 0.58 (0.63) after loan losses. COST/INCOME RATIO BEFORE LOAN LOSSES Loan losses Loan losses amounted to SEK 0 M ( 23), net, corresponding to loan losses of 0.00% ( 0.03). Impaired loans, gross, amounted to SEK 286 M (347), corresponding to a percentage of impaired loans, gross, of 0.14% (0.20). The settlement model, which was introduced on 1 January, regarding the commitment that the regional insurance companies have for loan losses related to the business they have originated entails that the regional insurance companies cover 80% of the provision requirement on the date when an impairment is identified, by off-setting this against a buffer of accrued commission. The transition to the model means that the Bank Group s credit reserves attributable to the regional insurance companies business on the date of introduction will be gradually reversed by SEK 158 M over two years. SEK 40 million was reversed during the period. Loan losses before reversal remained low and amounted to SEK 40 M (22), net. Reserves totalled SEK 312 M (377), corresponding to a reserve ratio in relation to loans of 0.15% (0.21). In addition, SEK 85 M of the remuneration to the regional insurance companies is withheld, in accordance with the settlement model described above. The reserve ratio in relation to loans, including the held remuneration to the regional insurance companies, was 0.20% (0.25).

The loan bears an interest rate corresponding to 3 months Stibor bps, is undated and cannot be repurchased until after five years. The loan meets all requirements to be included as Tier 1 capital under the capital adequacy rules. The Additional Tier 1 Capital loan strengthens the capital ratio for both Länsförsäkringar Bank AB and the consolidated situation. During the second quarter, Länsförsäkringar AB received a dividend corresponding to SEK 312 M, which impacted Core Tier 1 capital in the consolidated situation in the same amount. Capital adequacy, consolidated situation 1 With the CRR (575/2013) coming into effect, the consolidated situation also includes the parent mixed financial holding company Länsförsäkringar AB, in addition to the Bank Group. As previously communicated, the bank has submitted a new application to the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority for exemption from the provision on the consolidated situation under the Swedish Special Supervision of Credit Institutions and Investment Firms Act. The Financial Supervisory Authority announced on 6 that an exception had not been granted. Since the bank maintains the opinion that the actual risk and capital situation is best presented in the Bank Group s capital ratios, the actual risk and capital situation are published in parallel with the capital ratios according to the consolidated situation. During the period, Länsförsäkringar Bank AB and the subsidiary Länsförsäkringar Hypotek AB received permission from the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority to change its IRB model for calculating Loss Given Default (LGD) for loans secured on residential property for private individuals. This change will result in a lower Risk Exposure Amount (REA) and thus a higher Core Tier 1 ratio. However, the changed model will entail a corresponding increase in the Pillar II capital requirement due to the risk weight floor for mortgages. Furthermore, Länsförsäkringar approval for all of its companies that apply the IRB Approach to change the limit between what is classified as retail exposures and exposures to corporates. The total effect of these changes expressed in REA is SEK 11 bn.

The large decline was due to changes to the IRB model following approval from the Financial Supervisory Authority. Primarily, growth in loans in Länsförsäkringar Hypotek continued during the second quarter, which impacted retail-related REA in the form of mortgages. Under the Standardised Approach, REA fell a total of SEK 784 M during the period, due to such reasons as decreases in the exposure classes of covered bonds and corporates. In Pillar II, the risk weight floor for mortgages of 25% entailed an additional capital requirement of SEK 2,895 M (1,531). During the second quarter, Core Tier 1 capital strengthened based on generated profit in the Bank Group and dividends received in Länsförsäkringar AB, SEK 312 M. Furthermore, the changed IRB model 1 The comparative period pertains to 31 March. 4 LÄNSFÖRSÄKRINGAR BANK INTERIM REPORT JANUARY JUNE

5 (see above) led to a lower deduction for expected losses. In addition, the issue of a new Additional Tier 1 Capital loan of SEK 1.2 bn strengthened the Tier 1 ratio and the total capital ratio. The capital conservation buffer, which is to correspond to 2.5% of the risk-weighted exposure amount, totalled SEK 1,225 M on 30.

Interest-rate risk On 30, an increase in market interest rates of 1 percentage point would have decreased the value of interest-bearing assets and liabilities, including derivatives, by SEK 1 M (increase: 20). Risks and uncertainties The operations are characterised by a low risk profile. The Group and the Parent Company are exposed to a number of risks, primarily comprising credit risks, refinancing risks and market risks. The macroeconomic situation in Sweden is critical for credit risk since all loans are granted in Sweden. Market risks primarily comprise interest-rate risks. Loan losses remain low and the refinancing of business activities was highly satisfactory. A more detailed description of risks is available in the Annual Report. No significant changes in the allocation of risk have taken place compared with the description provided in the Annual Report.

On 30, the total credit reserve requirement amounted to SEK 397 M, of which the Bank Group s recognised credit reserve amounted to SEK 312 M and the remainder amounting to SEK 85 M was offset against the regional insurance companies held funds, according to the model described above.

There were no transfers from Level 3 during the period. The fair value of cash and balances with central banks, other assets, loans to credit institutions, due to credit institutions and other liabilities comprises a reasonable approximation of the fair value based on the cost of the assets and liabilities. When calculating the fair value of loans to the public and depositis and borrowing from the public, anticipated future cash flows have been discounted using a discount rate set at the current lending rate applied (including discounts). The main principle for measuring the fair value of debt securities in issue is that the value is measured at prices from external parties at the closing date or the most recent trading date. If external prices are not available or are deemed to deviate from market levels, and for measuring the fair value of subordinated liabilities, a standard method or valuation technique based on the estimated or original issue spread has been utilised. Derivatives essentially refer to swaps for which fair value has been calculated by discounting expected future cash flows. Gains and losses are recognised in profit and loss under net gains/losses from financial items. For information on the determination of fair value, valuation techniques and inputs, see also note Accounting policies. 17 LÄNSFÖRSÄKRINGAR BANK INTERIM REPORT JANUARY JUNE
