On 31 October, NIB published its interim financial report for the nine-month period ending 30 September 2019. A total of EUR 1,608 million in new loans were agreed and EUR 1,799 million were disbursed.
NIB’s mission is to finance projects that contribute to the productivity and benefit the environment of the Nordic and Baltic countries. Before approval is given in each individual case, all eligible projects are evaluated and rated against criteria based on the Bank’s mission. By 30 September, loans achieving a “good” or “excellent” mandate rating accounted for 99% of loans agreed.
On 30 August 2019, NIB published its 6-month interim financial report. During the half year ending on 30 June, a total of EUR 1,339 million were agreed in new loans and EUR 1,484 million were disbursed.
"Demand for long-term financing from NIB is still strong. The disbursments in the first half of the year were, as anticipated, lower than the historically high levels of 2018", says Henrik Normann, NIB President & CEO.
The net profit for the period amounted to EUR 95 million, down from EUR 110 million for the corresponding period of the previous year.

As anticipated, the disbursements in the first quarter of the year were lower than the historically high level of 2018. The net profit for the period amounted to EUR 54 million, up from EUR 49 million for the corresponding period in 2018.

We also updated our mandate rating framework, which we use to analyse the impact of projects, to better adapt to latest developments in sustainable finance, technology and environmental science.
In addition, we have been active in several Nordic and Baltic sustainability initiatives, and participated in setting new standards for the sustainable finance industry.
