Once the refinancing transaction is completed, Nordax’s outstanding notes will include 250 MSEK in Tier 2 capital, 500 MSEK in senior unsecured bonds as well as 3,110 MSEK in asset backed securities (ABS).

Morten Falch CEO comments: “We are pleased with the level of interest among investors and the refinancing of Tier 2 notes is in line with Nordax’s funding strategy. We are unique among peers in the Nordic market as we have a diversified funding structure based on four pillars; deposits, unsecured bonds, ABS and warehouse funding.
