Developments in inflation and interest rates dominate the risk outlook. With the prospect of lower inflation, markets expect more accommodative monetary policy during 2024. Nevertheless, shifts in expectations for the interest rate developments carry the risk of a sudden market correction. The high earnings in credit institutions continue to contribute to strengthening the institutions’ resilience against potential losses.
