Net gains/losses on financial transactions declined to SEK 864m (1,685), because the period of comparison included capital gains from the sale of shares totalling SEK 908m. Other income decreased to SEK 146m (427). The decrease was primarily attributable to lower dividend income.

Income increased by 1% to SEK 20,274m (20,165). Adjusted for capital gains on the sale of shares in the period of comparison, the increase was 5%. The effect of exchange rate movements was marginal. Net interest income rose by 6% to SEK 14,402m (13,603). Starting from 2017, the Bank defines its lending and deposit margins as the customer interest rate minus the internal interest rates which are either debited or credited to branch operations. Greater lending volumes increased net interest income by SEK 573m. At the same time, lending margins in branch operations had a negative impact of SEK -53m. Net interest income from deposit operations increased by SEK 141m. The benchmark effect in Stadshypotek decreased to SEK -39m (6), and the doubled fee to the Resolution Fund amounted to SEK -865m (-491). Including fees for various deposit guarantees, government fees increased by SEK 389m to SEK -1,043m (-654). The remainder of the improvement in net interest income was chiefly attributable to lower funding costs. Total average volume of loans to the public grew by 5% to SEK 2,002bn (1,911). Exchange rate effects increased average volumes by SEK 9bn. Household lending increased by 7% to SEK 1,047bn (980), while corporate lending grew by 3% to SEK 955bn (932). In local currencies, lending increased in all home markets. The average volumes of deposits and borrowing rose by 2% to SEK 1,000bn (985). The average volume of household deposits increased by 12% to SEK 410bn (366), while corporate deposits decreased by 5% to SEK 589bn (619). Net fee and commission income rose by 9% to SEK 4,862m (4,450), primarily due to higher fund and asset management commissions. Fund management

Total expenses decreased by 2% to SEK -9,295m (-9,513). Exchange rate effects reduced expenses by SEK 1m. Staff costs fell by 7% to SEK -6,160m (-6,620). In the first quarter, staff costs declined by SEK 239m as a result of the transition to a defined contribution pension plan in the Norwegian operations and the period of comparison including a provision of SEK -700m. Adjusted for these items, underlying staff costs rose by 8%, because of the resumption of provisions to the Oktogonen Foundation, which totalled SEK 486m (-). Variable remuneration, including social security costs and other payroll overheads, decreased to SEK -47m (-56). The average number of employees fell by 139, to 11,636 (11,775). Excluding the expanding operations in the UK and the Netherlands, the average number of employees decreased by 2%, and the ongoing work to improve efficiency continues according to plan.

Rising lending volumes contributed SEK 79m, while lending margins in the branch operations lifted net interest income by SEK 13m. Increased deposit volumes contributed SEK 21m, while deposit margins had a negative impact of SEK -20m. Exchange rate effects had a positive impact of SEK 18m on net interest income, and an extra day in the quarter contributed SEK 29m. Government fees totalled SEK -516m (-527). The benchmark effect in Stadshypotek decreased to SEK -31m (-8). The average volume of loans to the public grew by 1% to SEK 2,017bn (1,988). Household lending rose by 2%, and the average volume of corporate lending grew by 1%. The total average volume of deposits and borrowing rose by 8% to SEK 1,037bn (962). The effect of exchange rate movements was marginal. Household deposits increased by 4% and the average volume of corporate deposits increased by 11%. Net fee and commission income increased by 7% to SEK 2,508m (2,354). The increase was mainly due to rising fund management commissions and increased payment and advisory commissions. Fund management commissions increased by 5% to SEK 895m (849). Commissions on custody accounts and other asset management rose to SEK 169m (164). Net payment commissions rose by 12% to SEK 479m (429), chiefly due to an improvement in net income from card operations to SEK 306m (266). Advisory commissions increased by 88% to SEK 105m (56). Net gains/losses on financial transactions decreased to SEK 317m (547). Profits in the comparison quarter were positively impacted by market turbulence at yearend. The negative effects arising in Q4 2016 were reversed at the start of Q1 2017 when the market returned to normal. Other income equalled SEK 92m (54).

Expenses increased by 7% to SEK -4,797m (-4,498). Exchange rate effects increased expenses by SEK 24m. Staff costs rose by 11% to SEK -3,242m (-2,918). During the first quarter, the Norwegian operations transitioned to a defined contribution pension plan. This transition involved a non-recurring item which reduced staff costs by SEK 239m in the first quarter. Adjusted for this item, staff costs rose by 3%, of which 1 percentage point was due to exchange rate movements. The provision to the Oktogonen profit-sharing foundation was SEK -243m (-243). The period’s provision for variable remuneration increased to SEK -27m (-20). The average number of employees increased to 11,687 (11,584). The number of employees is increasing outside Sweden and in IT development but decreasing slightly in the Swedish branch operations. Other expenses decreased by 1% to SEK -1,410m (-1,430), chiefly due to lower costs of premises and properties. Loan losses SEK m

Loan losses decreased to SEK -186m (-196), and the loan loss ratio was 0.04% (0.04). The underlying credit quality remained stable. Net impaired loans decreased to SEK 2,952m (3,164), equivalent to 0.15% (0.16) of lending. Taxes

The tax rate in the second quarter was 22.8% (23.1). A normal tax rate for the Group is 22-23%. Starting in 2017, interest expenses on subordinated loans are no longer tax-deductible. On an annual basis, this has increased the Bank’s corporate tax by about SEK 280m. FUNDING AND LIQUIDITY

Handelsbanken’s bond issues during the first six months decreased to SEK 75bn (120), consisting of SEK 65bn (93) in covered bonds and SEK 10bn (27) in senior bonds. The Bank has large volumes of liquid funds, mortgage loans and other assets that are not encumbered and therefore represent protection for the Bank’s senior lenders. At the end of the period, the ratio of non-

Handelsbanken Handelsbanken

INTERIM REPORT JANUARY – JUNE 2017 INTERIM REPORT JANUARY – JUNE 2017

reduced the common equity tier 1 ratio by -0.5 percentage points. Conversions of the 2011 staff convertible bond increased the ratio by 0.1 percentage point. The period’s profit contributed 1.0 percentage point after a deduction for the dividend generated. Implementation of new PD models reduced the common equity tier 1 ratio by -1.8 percentage points. Higher lending volumes reduced the common equity tier 1 ratio by -0.1 percentage point, and credit risk migration in the loan portfolio had an additional impact of -0.2 percentage points. At the same time, as a result of new lending volumes having lower risk than the exposures leaving the credit portfolio (known as volume migration), the common equity tier 1 ratio increased by 0.3 percentage points. The effect of IAS 19 increased the common equity tier 1 capital ratio by 1.7 percentage points, due to both higher asset values and raised discount rates. The sale of AFS shares had a positive effect of 0.6 percentage points. Exchange rate effects were neutral, and the net effect of other factors reduced the common equity tier 1 ratio by -0.7 percentage points.

encumbered assets to all non-encumbered market funding was 236% (210% at year-end 2016). The Bank has a strong liquidity position. Cash funds and liquid assets invested with central banks amounted to SEK 489bn, while the volume of liquid bonds and other liquid assets totalled SEK 175bn. According to the current Swedish definition from January 2013, the Handelsbanken Group’s liquidity coverage ratio (LCR) at the end of the second quarter was 120% (139). In USD, the LCR was 177% (121), and in EUR it was 132% (181). The Group’s LCR, calculated according to the European Commission’s delegated act, was 136% (146). At the end of the second quarter, the net stable funding ratio (NSFR) was 106% (102% at year-end). CAPITAL

The Bank’s goal is that its common equity tier 1 ratio under normal circumstances should exceed by 1-3 percentage points the common equity tier 1 capital requirement communicated to the Bank by the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority. At the end of March, the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority approved the Bank’s new PD models for corporate exposures. During the second quarter, the Authority approved the Bank’s models for capital adequacy for sovereign exposures applying the IRB Approach. Capital adequacy for these exposures was previously calculated using the standardised approach and their risk weight was zero. Introduction of the new models increases the Bank’s risk exposure by SEK 9.6bn. The common equity tier 1 ratio at the end of the second quarter was 23.4%. At the end of the first quarter, the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority’s common equity tier 1 capital requirement was 20.3%. Thus the Bank’s common equity tier 1 ratio slightly exceeded the upper limit of the target interval.

Economic capital and available financial resources

RATING

Handelsbanken’s internal assessment of the capital need is based on the Bank’s capital requirement, stress tests, and the Bank’s model for economic capital (EC). Economic capital is measured in relation to the Bank’s available financial resources (AFR). The Board stipulates that the AFR/EC ratio for the Group must exceed 120%. At the end of the second quarter, EC for the Group totalled SEK 60.8bn, while AFR was SEK 155.6bn. Thus, the ratio between AFR and EC was 256%. For the parent company, EC totalled SEK 51.7bn, and AFR was SEK 129.8bn. For the consolidated situation, EC totalled SEK 33.4bn, and AFR was SEK 154.8bn.

During the first quarter, Standard & Poor’s changed their outlook for Handelsbanken to stable from negative. Otherwise, Handelsbanken’s short-term and long-term ratings with the rating agencies which monitor the Bank were unchanged.

INTERIM REPORT JANUARY – JUNE 2017 INTERIM REPORT JANUARY – JUNE 2017

JANUARY – JUNE 2017 COMPARED WITH JANUARY – JUNE 2016 Financial performance

Operating profit increased by 21% to SEK 6,577m (5,449). Adjusted for the staff cost provision of SEK -700m in Q1 2016, the increase was 7%. Net interest income increased by 6% to SEK 8,022m (7,572). Greater lending volumes increased net interest income by SEK 251m and improved lending margins by an additional SEK 54m. Deposit operations contributed SEK 60m thanks to volumes and SEK 16m thanks to improved margins. Fees for the Resolution Fund and the deposit guarantee rose by SEK 214m to -544m (-330), and the benchmark effect in Stadshypotek was SEK -39m (6). The remainder of the increase in net interest income was mainly due to lower funding costs. Net fee and commission income rose by 4% to SEK 2,175m (2,084). The increase was chiefly due to higher fund management, payment and insurance commissions. Net gains/losses on financial transactions declined by 14% to SEK 323m (374), mainly as a result of capital gains on equities in the period of comparison. Total expenses decreased by 14% to SEK -3,871m (-4,488), as a result of the preceding year’s staff cost provision of SEK -700m. Adjusted for the provision, staff costs decreased by 7%. The average number of employees fell by 8% to 3,998 (4,356). Expenses for services bought and sold internally increased by 17% to SEK -1,565m, mainly due to higher IT development costs. The C/I ratio improved to 34.7% (42.9). Loan losses declined to SEK -99m (-108), and the loan loss ratio was unchanged at 0.02% (0.02). Business development

At the beginning of April, Kantar Sifo presented the 2017 Company Reputation Index. This shows the degree of trust and quality that the Swedish public attaches to different companies. As in previous years, Handelsbanken was the major bank in which the general public had the most confidence. Handelsbanken is the only bank among the 10 companies with the best reputation in Sweden. In addition, confidence in the Bank increased, and Handelsbanken was given an index value of 58 (54). This can be compared with the average for the other three major banks, which went down to 31 (35).

During the first six months of the year, new savings in the Bank’s mutual funds in Sweden were SEK 10.8bn (5.5), corresponding to a market share of 18.1%. The average volume of deposits from households rose by 9% to SEK 312bn (286). The average volume of mortgage loans to private individuals increased by 7% to SEK 719bn (674), while the average volume of lending to companies was unchanged at SEK 482bn (482). During the second quarter, the Bank continued to adapt its branch operations, partly as a result of changed customer behaviour resulting from digitalisation. Handelsbanken had 423 branches (472) in Sweden. Q2 2017 COMPARED WITH Q1 2017

Operating profit increased by 9% to SEK 3,429m (3,148), and return on allocated capital rose to 15.7% (13.6). Net interest income rose by 3%, or SEK 130m, to SEK 4,076m (3,946). Increased lending volumes contributed SEK 49m, while lending margins reduced net interest income by SEK -3m. Net interest income from deposit operations increased by SEK 16m. The benchmark effect in Stadshypotek decreased to SEK -31m (-8). The average volume of mortgage loans to private individuals grew by 2% to SEK 725bn (714). The gross margin on the mortgage portfolio – before advisory and administration expenses – was unchanged at 1.06% (1.06). The average volume of corporate lending increased by 1% to SEK 486bn (479). Net fee and commission income grew by 6% to SEK 1,117m (1,058), due to increased fund management and payment commissions. Net gains/losses on financial transactions rose to SEK 176m (147), due to improved gains on bond repurchases in Stadshypotek. Expenses decreased by 2% to SEK -1,917m (-1,954), attributable to somewhat lower staff costs and reduced costs for services bought and sold. The average number of employees decreased to 3,990 (4,006). Loan losses fell to SEK -39m (-60), and the loan loss ratio fell to 0.01% (0.02).

INTERIM REPORT JANUARY – JUNE 2017 INTERIM REPORT JANUARY – JUNE 2017

JANUARY – JUNE 2017 COMPARED WITH JANUARY – JUNE 2016 Financial performance

Operating profit increased by 1% to SEK 1,120m (1,104). Exchange rate movements reduced operating profit by SEK -69m; expressed in local currency operating profit grew by 9%. The return on allocated capital decreased to 14.1% (16.5). Income rose by 2%. In local currency, income rose by 9%. Net interest income improved by 2% to SEK 2,257m (2,218). Exchange rate movements had a negative impact of SEK -145m on net interest income, while net interest income grew by 9% expressed in local currency. Increased lending volumes contributed SEK 175m, and deposit volumes contributed SEK 55m. Lower lending margins negatively affected net interest income by SEK -66m and deposit margins by SEK -19m. Government fees which affected net interest income rose to SEK -90m (-43). Net fee and commission income rose by 16% to SEK 290m (251). In local currency, the increase was 24%, mainly due to higher payment and asset management commissions but also to higher deposit and lending commissions. Net gains/losses on financial transactions decreased to SEK 94m (126), chiefly because the period of comparison included one-off income related to the sale of Visa Europe. Expenses rose by 4% to SEK -1,485m (-1,427). In local currency, expenses were up by 11%, as a result of expanding operations as well as costs related to Brexit and preparations for the possible conversion of the UK branch into a subsidiary. The average number of employees grew by 4% to 2,006 (1,934). Loan losses fell to SEK -35m (-67), and the loan loss ratio fell to 0.04% (0.07). Business development

Business volumes continued to grow. The average volume of deposits from households climbed by 54%, and lending to households grew by 12%, compared

13

12

with the first half of 2016. Overall, the average volume of lending increased by 11% to GBP 17.9bn, while total deposits grew by 27% to GBP 11.6bn. Therefore the loan-to-deposit ratio continued to decrease and was 150% at the end of Q2 2017, compared with 172% at the end of Q2 2016. Heartwood’s assets under management totalled GBP 3.2bn, compared with GBP 2.9bn at the year-end. The number of branches in the UK was unchanged during the first six months, at 207. Q2 2017 COMPARED WITH Q1 2017

Operating profit rose by 15% to SEK 599m (521), chiefly due to improved net interest income. Exchange rate effects had a positive impact of SEK 12m on operating profit. The return on allocated capital increased to 15.6% (12.8). Income grew by 9% to SEK 1,376m (1,265). Net interest income rose by 9%, or SEK 99m, to SEK 1,178m (1,079), of which SEK 20m was attributable to exchange rate effects and SEK 11m to there being fewer days in the comparison quarter. An adjustment of interest income attributable to impaired loans increased net interest income by SEK 37m. Adjusted for these items, net interest income rose by 3%. Greater business volumes had a positive impact of SEK 34m, while lower deposit margins had an impact of SEK -10m on net interest income. Lending margins improved somewhat, increasing net interest income by SEK 2m. Net fee and commission income increased to SEK 150m (140), chiefly due to higher commissions on deposits and lending as well as on payments. Net gains/losses on financial transactions rose to SEK 48m (46). Expenses increased by 3% to SEK -754m (-731). Just over half the increase was attributable to exchange rate effects. The remainder of the increase was partly attributable to preparations for Brexit. The average number of employees rose to 2,022 (1,991). Loan losses were SEK -23m (-12), and the loan loss ratio was 0.05% (0.02).

JANUARY – JUNE 2017 COMPARED WITH JANUARY – JUNE 2016 Financial performance

Operating profit grew by 7% to SEK 496m (462), as a result of increased income. Exchange rate movements had a positive impact of SEK 15m on operating profit. The return on allocated capital increased to 14.3% (12.8). Net interest income increased by 3% to SEK 842m (814). Adjusted for exchange rate movements, net interest income was more or less unchanged. Increased lending volumes contributed SEK 47m, while lower lending margins reduced net interest income by SEK -25m. Improved deposit margins and higher deposit volumes increased net interest income by SEK 3m. Fees for the Swedish Resolution Fund and the deposit guarantee increased by SEK 15m, burdening net interest income by SEK -38m (-23). Net fee and commission income rose by 20% to SEK 229m (191). The increase was attributable to a high level of customer activity in all commission areas and especially to higher brokerage income and increased asset management commissions. Exchange rate movements had a positive impact of SEK 6m on net fee and commission income. Net gains/losses on financial transactions increased to SEK 53m (35), partly a result of increased early repayment charges as well as larger earnings in the foreign exchange business. Expenses rose by 6% to SEK -574m (-544). Adjusted for the effect of exchange rate movements, the increase was 2%.

Loan losses were SEK -70m (-44), and the loan loss ratio was 0.14% (0.10).

During the year, the average volume of lending to households increased by 10%, and deposits from households increased by 8%. Corporate lending grew by 2%, while corporate deposits grew by 22%. Overall the average volume of lending increased by 7% to DKK 72.8bn (68.3), and deposits increased by 16% to DKK 31.1bn (26.9). Q2 2017 COMPARED WITH Q1 2017

Operating profit declined to SEK 226m (270) as a result of higher loan losses. Profit before loan losses grew by 8% to SEK 290m (268), due to higher income and lower expenses. Net interest income increased by 2% to SEK 425m (417). Adjusted for exchange rate effects of SEK 8m and a day effect of SEK 4m, net interest income fell by 1%. Lower lending volumes reduced net interest income by SEK -4m, while lending margins remained largely unchanged. Net interest income from deposits was unchanged. Net fee and commission income increased by 12% to SEK 121m (108). The increase was attributable to robust customer activity that resulted in higher brokerage income and increased payment commissions. Net gains/losses on financial transactions rose to SEK 29m (24). Expenses fell by 1% to SEK -286m (-288). Exchange rate effects increased expenses by SEK 5m. Staff costs fell by 2%, and the average number of employees fell by 1%.

INTERIM REPORT JANUARY – JUNE 2017 INTERIM REPORT JANUARY – JUNE 2017

JANUARY – JUNE 2017 COMPARED WITH JANUARY – JUNE 2016 Financial performance

Operating profit increased by 30% to SEK 1,451m (1,120). It was affected by a non-recurring item in the first quarter which reduced staff costs by SEK 206m, as a result of the transition to a defined contribution pension plan in the Norwegian operations. Lower loan losses and exchange rate movements also had a positive impact on profit. The period of comparison included non-recurring items resulting from the sale of Visa Europe. Adjusted for the aforementioned items, profit before loan losses improved by 6% expressed in local currency. Return on allocated capital was 14.4% (13.8). Adjusted for exchange rate effects, income rose by 3%. Net interest income increased by SEK 217m, or 14%, to SEK 1,783m (1,566), of which SEK 88m was attributable to exchange rate movements. Lending margins rose by SEK 43m, while increased lending volumes had a positive effect of SEK 32m on net interest income. Improved deposit margins and higher deposits had a positive effect of SEK 25m on net interest income. The fees for the Swedish Resolution Fund and the deposit guarantee reduced net interest income by SEK -97m (-53). Net fee and commission income increased by 17% to SEK 205m (175). Adjusted for exchange rate movements, net fee and commission income rose by 11%, chiefly due to higher fund management commissions. Net gains/losses on financial transactions decreased by 32% to SEK 46m (68). The decrease was chiefly attributable to capital gains in the period of comparison related to the sale of Visa Europe. Adjusted for the aforementioned transition to a defined contribution pension plan, staff costs rose by SEK 62m, or 19%, of which SEK 20m was attributable to exchange rate effects. The new financial sector tax in Norway – a 5% charge payable on wage costs – had an impact of SEK -17m on staff costs. Adjusted for these effects, staff costs increased by 8% compared to the corresponding period in the preceding year. Loan losses fell to SEK -102m (-167), and the loan loss ratio fell to 0.08% (0.16).

Business development

Business volumes continued to grow during the first six months. The average volume of deposits from households climbed by 4% compared to the corresponding period in the preceding year, while lending to households grew by 4%. The average volume of corporate lending increased by 4%, while corporate deposits grew by 15%. In total, the average volume of lending rose by 4% to NOK 235.5bn (225.8), while total deposits rose by 12% to NOK 68.5bn (61.4). Handelsbanken has 49 branches (50) in Norway. Q2 2017 COMPARED WITH Q1 2017

Operating profit decreased by SEK 215m to SEK 618m (833), of which SEK 206m was attributable to the nonrecurring item in the preceding quarter that resulted from the transition to a defined contribution pension plan. Exchange rate effects had a negative impact of SEK 17m on operating profit. Adjusted for both these effects, operating profit rose by just over 1%. Net interest income rose by 1%, or SEK 13m, to SEK 898m (885). Exchange rate movements had a negative impact of SEK -19m, while fewer days in the preceding quarter had a positive impact of SEK 8m on net interest income during the second quarter. Higher lending margins contributed SEK 20m, and rising lending volumes SEK 9m. Net interest on deposits declined by SEK -9m, chiefly due to lower deposit margins. Net fee and commission income was largely unchanged at SEK 102m (103). Net gains/losses on financial transactions decreased to SEK 19m (27), chiefly as a result of weaker profits in the foreign exchange business. Expenses totalled SEK -351m (-140). Adjusted for the non-recurring item that reduced staff costs for the preceding quarter by SEK 206m and for exchange rate effects of SEK 3m, expenses increased by 2%.

Loan losses increased to SEK -56m (-46), and the loan loss ratio was 0.09% (0.08).

INTERIM REPORT JANUARY – JUNE 2017 INTERIM REPORT JANUARY – JUNE 2017

JANUARY – JUNE 2017 COMPARED WITH JANUARY – JUNE 2016 Financial performance

Operating profit increased by 20% to SEK 942m (782). Total income grew by 5% to SEK 2,603m (2,476). Net fee and commission income grew by 8% to SEK 1,641m (1,513), driven mainly by higher mutual fund commissions. Net gains/losses on financial transactions went up by 8% to SEK 627m (578). Total expenses decreased by 6% to SEK -1,597m (-1,697). The decrease was mainly attributable to staff costs falling by 6% to SEK -1,132m (-1,207), partly as a result of a 4% fall in the average number of employees to 1,635 (1,700). Loan losses amounted to SEK -64m (3), corresponding to a loan loss ratio of 0.28% (-0.01). Business development

Asset management operations continued to show a strong performance. In Sweden, net savings in Handelsbanken’s mutual funds during the first six months of 2017 amounted to SEK 10.8bn, corresponding to a market share of 18.1%. Net savings in the Bank’s mutual funds elsewhere in the Nordic region showed strong growth, increasing to SEK 4.4bn. Total net savings in the Group’s funds amounted to SEK 15bn. Xact Kapitalförvaltning remained the largest player as regards Nordic exchange-traded funds. The total fund volume, including exchange-traded funds, increased by 10% from the beginning of the year to SEK 468bn (425). Total assets under management in the Group rose during the same period by 7% to SEK 582bn (542). Morningstar, a mutual fund research company, ranked Handelsbanken’s mutual funds highest of the Nordic banks when it evaluated the 30 largest fund managers on the Swedish market. In addition, during the year, Lipper Fund Awards ranked four of the Bank’s funds as the best in their respective categories. The Pension & Life business area showed positive performance, with its income increasing and expenses decreasing. The occupational pension area showed particularly strong performance, with a 30% increase in

23

premiums paid in. The net flow during the first six months was SEK 3.1bn. In the first half of 2017, the volume of assets under management by Handelsbanken Liv grew to SEK 133bn (122). As of 1 July 2017, all the Bank’s global index funds track new, more sustainable indexes. This change of indexes means, among other things, that a large number of companies are excluded as investment alternatives for mutual funds. Corporate Finance business showed a strong performance, and according to Mergermarket, the Bank was No.1 for M&A transactions involving Swedish companies. The Bank’s business volumes in terms of capital market funding also showed strong performance. The Bank arranged a total of 69 bond issues during the quarter for a value of EUR 8.3bn. The average volume of lending in Handelsbanken International, i.e. the operations outside the Bank’s home markets, totalled SEK 33.7bn (35.1). During the same period, deposits rose by 11% to SEK 49.0bn (44.2). Q2 2017 COMPARED WITH Q1 2017

Operating profit fell by 12% to SEK 441m (501), due to lower income and higher expenses than in the preceding quarter. Total income fell by 6% to SEK 1,261m (1,342), as a result of higher net gains/losses on financial transactions during the quarter of comparison. During the first quarter, net profit was positively affected by the market turbulence around the turn of the year, as the negative effects arising in Q4 2016 were reversed in early 2017 when the market returned to normal. Total expenses rose by 8% to SEK -831m (-766), chiefly due to higher staff costs. Staff costs rose by 8%, mainly due to a non-recurring item in the preceding quarter that reduced staff costs in Norway due to the transition to a defined contribution pension plan. The average number of employees totalled 1,627 (1,643). Loan losses consisted of net recoveries, and totalled SEK 11m (-75), corresponding to a loan loss ratio of -0.10% (0.67).

Capital gains from the sale of shares totalling SEK 812m were included in the comparison period. The average number of employees rose to 1,966 (1,821), chiefly due to increased activity in IT development.

NOTES

Note 1 Accounting policies Accounting policies This interim report has been prepared in accordance with IAS 34 Interim Financial Reporting. The consolidated accounts have been prepared in accordance with international financial reporting standards (IFRS) and interpretations of these standards as adopted by the EU. The accounting policies also follow the Swedish Annual Accounts Act for Credit Institutions and Securities Companies (1995:1559), and the regulations and general guidelines issued by the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority, FFFS 2008:25 Annual reports in credit institutions and securities companies. RFR 1 Supplementary accounting rules for groups as well as statements

losses, and not on incurred loan losses as in the current IAS 39 regulations. The provisions will also be based on a probabilityweighted outcome, unlike the current IAS 39 where the provision is based on the most expected outcome. All in all, in the transition to IFRS 9, this may entail higher provisions for loan losses. This regulatory change may lead to an adjustment of equity. No final decision has yet been taken as to how these effects will be dealt with as regards the relationship between the expected loan loss provisions in accounting terms and the expected loan losses in capital adequacy terms. The Bank is currently analysing the financial effects of the new standard in more detail.

the 2018 financial year. IFRS 15 introduces a five-step model to establish how and when revenue must be recognised. However, the standard does not apply to financial instruments, insurance contracts or leases. IFRS 15 also contains increased disclosure requirements relating to revenue. The Bank’s assessment is that the new standard will not have any material impact on Handelsbanken’s financial reports, capital adequacy or large exposures. IFRS 16 Leases has also been published by the IASB. Assuming that IFRS 16 is adopted by the EU, and the date of implementation proposed by the IASB is not changed, this standard will be applied as of the 2019 financial year. The main change due to the new standard is that all lease contracts (with the exception of short-term and minor lease contracts) must be recognised as an asset (right-of-use asset) and as a liability in the lessee’s balance sheet. The lease payment must be reported as depreciation and interest expense. There are also increased disclosure requirements. For lessors, the requirements are largely unchanged. The Bank is analysing the financial effects of the new standard.

Impaired loans Impaired loans includes all loans in respect of which all contracted cash flows will probably not be fulfilled. The full amount of all loans which give rise to a specific provision is included in impaired loans, including amounts which are covered by collateral. This means that the impaired loans reserve ratio is stated without taking into account collateral received. Thus, this key figure may vary substantially between the quarters, even though the provisioning policies are unchanged.

7,288 7,288 Net amount Derivative instruments are set off on the balance sheet when the settlement of two or more derivatives reflects the Bank’s anticipated cash flows. Repurchase agreements and reverse repurchase agreements with central counterparty clearing houses are set off on the balance sheet when this reflects the Bank's anticipated cash flows in the settlement of two or more agreements. This occurs when the Bank has both a contractual right and intention to settle the agreed cash flows with a net amount. The remaining counterparty risk in derivatives is reduced through netting agreements if payments are suspended, i.e. netting positive values against negative values in all derivative transactions with the same counterparty in a bankruptcy situation. Handelsbanken’s policy is to sign netting agreements with all bank counterparties. Netting agreements are supplemented with agreements for issuing collateral for the net exposure. The collateral used is mainly cash, but government securities are also used. Collateral for repurchase agreements and borrowing and lending of securities is normally in the form of cash or other securities.

The amount set off for derivative assets includes set-off cash collateral of SEK 2,438m (3,565), derived from the balance sheet item deposits and borrowing from the public. The amount set off for derivative liabilities includes set-off cash collateral of SEK 914m (2,367), derived from the balance sheet item loans to the public.

collaboration on Handelsbanken’s home markets. In general, such holdings are valued at the Bank’s share of the company’s net asset value, or alternatively at the price of the last completed transaction. In all material respects, unlisted shares are classified as available for sale. Value changes for these holdings are thus reported in other comprehensive income.

The Bank regularly conducts separate valuations of the total credit risk component (own credit risk as well as counterparty risk) in outstanding model-valued derivatives. Changes in fair value due to changed credit risk are recognised in profit/loss to the extent that the overall effect exceeds non-recognised day 1 gains/losses.

INTERIM REPORT JANUARY – JUNE 2017 INTERIM REPORT JANUARY – JUNE 2017

Note 18 Own funds and capital requirements in the consolidated situation The requirements for the calculation of own funds and capital requirements are regulated in Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 (CRR) and Directive 2013/36/EU, which comprise the EU’s implementation of the international Basel III regulations. All references to CRR in this interim report refer to these regulations in their entirety, regardless of legislative form (regulation, directive, executive decree or national implementation). Figures reported in this section refer to the minimum capital requirements under Pillar 1 and meet the requirements for publication of information relating to capital adequacy in CRR Part Eight, as well as in the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority’s regulation FFFS 2014:12.

The total average risk weight for exposures approved for the IRB Approach decreased during the quarter, amounting to 12.8% (15.6). The reason why the average risk weight has decreased is that sovereign exposures began to be reported in accordance with the IRB Approach during the quarter, and these have an average risk weight of 1.7%. Credit quality is good. Of Handelsbanken’s corporate exposures, 97% were customers with a repayment capacity assessed as normal or better than normal, i.e. with a rating grade between 1 and 5 on the Handelsbanken Handelsbanken

Total capital requirement for market risks

The capital requirement for market risks is calculated for the Bank’s consolidated situation. The capital requirement for interest rate risks and equity price risks is, however, only calculated for positions in the trading book. When calculating the capital requirement for market risks, the standardised approach is applied.

Capital requirement operational risk Handelsbanken uses the standardised approach, to calculate the capital requirement for operational risk. According to the standardised approach, the capital requirement is calculated by multiplying a factor specified in the regulations by the average operating income during the last three years of operation. Different factors are applied in different business segments.

Leverage ratio The provisions of CRR include a reporting requirement regarding a non-risk-based leverage ratio. The measurement is to undergo evaluation and no decision to make it mandatory has yet been taken.

The table shows holdings of bonds and other interest-bearing securities in the time intervals in which they can be converted to liquidity if they are pledged as collateral or sold. This means that the table does not reflect the actual maturities for the securities included. In “Other”, assets and liabilities are reported as maturing in the time intervals that correspond to the contractual maturity dates, taking into account contractual amortisation plans. Sight deposits are reported under “Unspecified maturity”. “Other” includes market values in derivative transactions.

The components are defined in accordance with the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority's regulations and requirements for the liquidity coverage ratio and reporting of liquid assets and cash flows (FFFS 2012:6). Liquid assets level 1 corresponds to Chapter 3, Section 6. Liquid assets level 2 corresponds to Chapter 3, Section 7. Deposits from customers corresponds to Chapter 4, Sections 4-9. Market funding corresponds to Chapter 4, Sections 10-13. Other cash flows corresponds to Chapter 4, Sections 14-25. Loans to non-financial customers corresponds to Chapter 5, Section 4. Other cash inflows corresponds to Chapter 5, Sections 6-12.

delegated act, was 136%.

The minimum requirement in 2017 is 80%, and this will be raised to 100% by 2018, when the delegated act will be fully implemented. However, according to the delegated act, the LCR is based on the less stringent LCR proposed by the Basel Committee in 2013 and certain EU-specific changes, for example, that the liquidity reserve may include a higher proportion of covered bonds. By making requirements for a short-term liquidity buffer in FFFS 2012:6 as early as 2013, Sweden has moved more quickly than required by the EU. The requirement amounts to 100%, but the definition of what comprises a short-term liquidity buffer differs from what applies at EU level. The LCR which the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority has implemented is a stricter LCR measurement, mainly in terms of deposit outflow assumptions and the composition of the liquidity portfolio. The minimum requirement for the net stable funding ratio is expected to be introduced in the EU

Stress test with liquidity-creating measures The Bank’s liquidity position is regularly subjected to stress tests. In these tests, the Bank’s cash flows are stressed, based on certain defined assumptions. For example, in the stress test aimed at demonstrating resistance to more long-term market disruptions, it is assumed that the Bank is unable to obtain funding in the financial markets at the same time as it experiences a gradual disappearance of 10% of deposits from households and companies over the first month. It is further assumed that the Bank continues to conduct its core activities, i.e. loans to households and companies, and that committed loan offers and other credit facilities are partly utilised by customers. Account is also taken of the fact that holdings with central banks are utilised and that the Group Treasury liquidity portfolio can provide immediate additional liquidity. In addition, liquidity-creating

Comment on results for parent company, January – June 2017 compared with January – June 2016 The parent company’s accounts cover parts of the operations that, in organisational terms, are included in branch operations within and outside Sweden, Capital Markets, and central departments and staff functions. Although most of Handelsbanken’s business comes from the local branches and is co-ordinated by them, in legal terms a sizeable part of business volumes are outside the parent company in wholly-owned subsidiaries – particularly in the Stadshypotek AB mortgage institution. Thus, the performance of the parent company is not equivalent to the performance of business operations in the Group as a whole. The parent company’s operating profit decreased by 47% to SEK 4,628m (8,770), chiefly owing to reduced dividends, as well as lower net gains/losses on financial transactions. Profit for the period decreased by 54% to SEK 3,711m (8,045). Net interest income rose by 10% to SEK 7,976m (7,233), and net fee and commission income increased by 4% to SEK 3,351m (3,228). Since the start of the year, the parent company’s equity has decreased to SEK 109,358m (116,642).

Auditors’ review report To the Board of Svenska Handelsbanken AB (publ), corporate identity number 502007-7862 INTRODUCTION

We have reviewed the interim report for Svenska Handelsbanken AB (publ) as at 30 June 2017 and for the six-month period then ended. The Board of Directors and the Chief Executive are responsible for the preparation and presentation of this interim report in accordance with IAS 34 and the Swedish Annual Accounts Act for Credit Institutions and Securities Companies. Our responsibility is to express a conclusion on this interim report based on our review. SCOPE OF THE REVIEW

We conducted our review in accordance with the International Standard on Review Engagements ISRE 2410 Review of Interim Financial Statements Performed by the Independent Auditor of the Entity. A review consists of making inquiries, primarily of persons responsible for financial and accounting matters, and applying analytical and other review procedures. A review is substantially less in scope

than an audit conducted in accordance with International Standards on Auditing and other generally accepted auditing standards in Sweden. The procedures performed in a review do not enable us to obtain assurance that we would become aware of all significant matters that might be identified in an audit. Accordingly, we do not express an audit opinion. CONCLUSION

Based on our review, nothing has come to our attention that causes us to believe that the interim report is not prepared, in all material respects, in accordance with IAS 34 and the Swedish Annual Accounts Act for Credit Institutions and Securities Companies regarding the Group, and in accordance with the Swedish Annual Accounts Act for Credit Institutions and Securities Companies regarding the parent company.
