OSLO, June 4 (Reuters) - High debt levels among Norwegian consumers and high property prices continue to pose a significant risk to the Nordic country’s economic and financial stability, its Financial Supervisory Authority (FSA) said on Tuesday.
“High debt levels and high property prices pose a significant risk to economic and financial stability in Norway,” the agency said in a statement.
Residential mortgage lending regulations have contributed to tighter lending practices, but the growth in households’ overall debt nevertheless remains high, it added. (Reporting by Gwladys Fouche, editing by Nerijus Adomaitis)
