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

"In October, we saw a good growth of both the deposits and the loan portfolio, which means that although the economy is going through a cooling phase, the activity of customers in the market has remained at the good level and they are looking for a good return on their free money, and there are also those who make investment decisions. At the same time, the loan portfolios also remain of high quality.

Since the general cooling of the economy and taming of inflation can be seen across Europe, it can be assumed that interest rates have now reached their peak and this is positive news for borrowers. At the same time, the peak of interest rates on deposits is also reached, and depositors now have the last chance to take advantage of the good offers available before the interest rates reverse their downward trend.

The halt in the rise of interest rates is expected to give a positive boost to the confidence of entrepreneurs and consumers, and we will start to see a step-by-step increase in investment courage in the coming quarters. As a domestic bank, Coop Pank is always ready to contribute to the business plans of local entrepreneurs and to finance projects that advance life in Estonia.

In October, Coop Pank kept operational costs under control and increased business volumes, which resulted in a net profit of 3.6 million euros. Coop Pank's return on equity was 23.7% in October, and the cost-income ratio was 43%.”
