Covered Bond Label Strengthens its Foothold in the Nordics

27 October 2016

The Covered Bond Label Foundation (CBLF) is pleased to announce that Norway’s SR-Boligkreditt has become the 80th issuer to join the Covered Bond Label.

Moreover, the Covered Bond Label’s presence in the Nordic countries has been further strengthened by the addition of Stadshypotek AB’s Finnish pool of assets to the Label earlier in October 2016, bringing the total number of labelled cover pools to 96.

Commenting on these latest developments, Luca Bertalot, Covered Bond Label Foundation Administrator, said:

“We want to thank SR-Boligkreditt and Stadshypotek AB for their trust in the Covered Bond Label initiative. These additions to the Label family are of particular importance since a strong presence in the traditional covered bond markets, such as the Nordics, is of paramount importance for the long term success of the Covered Bond Label.”
