They are headed for more expensive loans in 2024

Yesterday, a number of banks raised interest rates on real estate loans and deposits.

Big banks like DNB, Nordea and Handelsbanken raised their shares at the same pace that Danske Bank is doing now. Several other banks opted for more cautious mortgage loan increases of up to 0.15 percentage points.

These increases come after interest rates were raised by Norges Bank just over a week ago. The central bank surprised the market and economists when it raised interest rates by 0.25 percentage points. Norway’s key interest rate is now 4.5 percent, the highest level since 2008.

Banks must notify interest rate increases 8 weeks before they take effect. Therefore, the changes to mortgages in recent days will not take effect until mid-February.
