Nordic banks lose customer confidence
Banks got a cold shower from the SOM Institute’s April 2014 report on Swedish residents’ confidence in important social functions during 2013.
As a group, banks in Sweden lost significant customer confidence between 2013 and 2012—a full 9 points on the confidence index. This indicates that Sweden’s residents have even less confidence in the European Parliament, European Commission, municipal boards, and the political parties. The trend is nearly as dismal in other Nordic countries.
