Abstract: There are no immediate threats to the stability of the Finnish financial system. The relocation of Nordea’s corporate headquarters will, however, increase the banking sector’s exposure to structural vulnerabilities. The regulatory and supervisory reforms already implemented and participation in the European Banking Union will serve to mitigate the risks associated with the expansion of the banking sector, but adoption of a common European Deposit Insurance Scheme remains an important measure yet to be implemented within the Banking Union. An income-related cap on loans is needed to rein in the increase in household indebtedness.
