SWEDBANK (SWEDa.ST)

The Swedish financial group is one of the best capitalised in Europe, Chairman Carl Eric Stalberg told daily Dagens Industri, adding he found it difficult to understand speculation the bank would need to raise more new capital.

Swedbank issued 12.4 billion crowns ($1.44 billion) of new shares at the end of last year and last week dropped plans to pay a dividend for 2008 to shore up its capital position against rising loan losses — mainly from the Baltic region.

“Of course, looking back now, you can obviously say that expansion in the Baltic was too fast,” Stalberg added.

However, he said that the crisis would pass in the region and Swedbank would be in a strong position.
