SEB Predicts GDP Growth in Sweden

Caroline Probst

SEB's Nordic Outlook Report has predicted that global GDP will increase by 4% per year in 2018 and 2019. This is also the case in 2020, although with a slightly slower acceleration.

 SEB wrapped Q2 with strong growth trends and is now revising their GDP growth forecast for the next couple of years. This increase in growth will be provided by exports and industrial investments as households wait to spend and the construction of new homes decreases.

Due to low underlying inflation, SEB believes that the Riksbank will hold off on increasing rates until April 2019. Although financial markets are keeping an eye on the upcoming election, SEB does anticipate that a Swedish political risk premium is a likelihood. However, these low interest rates impacts the krona, making it remain weak.
