Comment by Paavo Truu, Member of the Management Board and CFO of Coop Pank:

“In May, Coop Pank showed strong growth in all financing business lines for the second month in a row. We see that the downward trend in interest rates is reviving the credit market, which has encouraged private individuals to take out home loans and leases, and corporate customers to make new investments. This confirms that the economy is moving into the growth phase again, and more and more local people and companies have chosen domestic Coop Pank to grow with.

The general decline in interest rates has somewhat reduced the interest of term deposits – if in the last 18 months we have seen a rapid increase in the share of term deposits, now this growth has stopped, but Coop Pank continues to offer a good interest rate for shorter term deposits as well as demand deposits of individuals and companies.

In May, Coop Pank transferred a dividend of 8.7 cents per share to the bank accounts of its 37,200 shareholders, or a total of 8.9 million euros, of which 98% went to the accounts of Estonian people and companies.”
