The net interest income for January-June totalled EUR 11,870 thousand
(8,043)[1]. Earnings before tax amounted to EUR 5,361 thousand (2,261). Increase
in net interest income was due to the growth in the loan portfolio.

Net commissions and fees were negative with commission income increasing to EUR
1,712 thousand (1,357) and commission expenses to EUR 6,298 thousand (5,698).
 Commission expenses mainly comprise commissions paid to OP-Pohjola Group member
banks for servicing housing loans. The bank's expenses amounted to EUR 1,928
thousand (1,450). Growth in expenses derived largely from the ICT-services and
the professional services purchased in connection with the new covered bond
issue. OPA did not recognise any loan losses for the first six months.

Net interest income for April-June grow to EUR 6,670 thousand (3,952) and
earnings before taxes to EUR 2,985 thousand (1,030). The bank's expenses grow to
EUR 997 thousand (767).

The loan portfolio increased from EUR 5,008 million on 31 December 2010 to EUR
6,643 million on 30 June 2011. OPA increased its loan portfolio in the review
period when it purchased housing loans from OP-Pohjola-Group member banks for
EUR 2,184 million.

On 30 June, households accounted for 99 % (99) of the loan portfolio and housing
corporations for 1 % (1). The bank's non-performing loans amounted to EUR 1.4
million (1.4). No impairment losses on loans were recognised.

The carrying amount of bonds issued to the public totalled EUR 4,246 million
(3,287) on 30 June.

OPA issued its fifth covered bond at a nominal value of EUR 1 billion on
international capital markets in April. Moody's Investor Services and Standard &
Poor's Rating Services have given the bond their highest credit ratings of Aaa
and AAA. In addition to bonds, other funding was based on financing loans
granted by Pohjola Bank plc (Pohjola). On 30 June, financing loans totalled EUR
2,245 million (1,640).

Shareholders' equity rose to EUR 213 million (159). Retained earnings amounted
to EUR 17.8 million (13.8) at the end of the review period.

OPA has hedged against the interest-rate risk associated with its housing loan
portfolio through interest-rate swaps, i.e. base rate cash flows from housing
loans to be hedged are swapped to short-term Euribor cash flows. OPA has also
swapped the fixed interest rates of the bonds it has issued to short-term
variable rates. OPA's interest-rate derivative portfolio totalled EUR 12,461
million (9,622). All derivative contracts have been concluded for hedging
purposes. Pohjola is the counterparty to all derivative contracts.

Development of Capital Adequacy

OPA's capital adequacy ratio stood at 9.6% on 30 June. Shareholder's equity
increased by EUR 50 million in March when OP-Pohjola Group Central Cooperative
made an additional investment in OPA. OPA calculates its capital adequacy in
compliance with Basel II. Credit risk and the capital requirement for
operational risk are calculated according to the standardised approach.

Joint Responsibility and Joint Security

Under the Act on Cooperative Banks and Other Cooperative Credit Institutions,
the amalgamation of the cooperative banks comprises the organisation's central
institution (OP-Pohjola Group Central Cooperative), the Central Cooperative's
member credit institutions and the companies belonging to their consolidation
groups. This amalgamation is monitored on a consolidated basis. The Central
Cooperative and its member banks are ultimately responsible for each other's
liabilities and commitments.

The Central Cooperative's members at the end of the report period comprised OP-
Pohjola Group's 209 member banks as well as Pohjola Bank plc, Helsinki OP Bank
Plc, OP Mortgage Bank and OP-Kotipankki Oyj. OP-Pohjola Group's insurance
companies do not fall within the scope of joint responsibility.

The central institution is obligated to provide its member credit institutions
with instructions on their internal supervision and risk management, their
operations in securing liquidity and capital adequacy, and compliance with
uniform accounting principles in preparing the coalition's consolidated
financial statements.

The central institution and its member credit institutions are jointly
responsible for the liabilities of the central institution or a member credit
institution placed in liquidation or bankruptcy that cannot be paid from its
assets. The liability is divided between the central institution and the member
credit institutions in ratios following the balance sheet total.

In spite of the joint responsibility and the joint security, pursuant to Section
25 of the Act on Mortgage Credit Banks, the holder of a bond with mortgage
collateral shall, notwithstanding the liquidation or bankruptcy of a mortgage
credit bank, have the right to receive payment, before other claims, for the
entire loan period of the bond, in accordance with the contract terms, from the
funds entered as collateral for the bond.

Personnel

On 30 June, OPA had five employees.  It purchases all key support services from
Central Cooperative and its Group companies, which reduces the need for more
staff.

Board of Directors. Mr. Mika Helin, Executive Vice President, Hämeenlinnan

Julyl 2011.
Moody's Investor Services and Standard & Poor's Rating Services have given the
bond their highest credit ratings of Aaa and AAA.

Prospects for the rest of the year

The overall quality of OPA's credit portfolio is expected to remain strong. The
existing issuance programme will make it possible to issue new covered bonds in
the end of 2011. The earnings before tax in 2011 are expected to higher than in
2010.

Calculation of key ratios

Return on equity, % = Annualised profit for the period / Equity capital (average
equity capital at the beginning and end of the period) × 100

Cost/income ratio, % = (Personnel costs + Other administrative expenses + Other
operating expenses) / (Net interest income + Net commission income + Net income
from trading + Total net income from investments + Other operating income) × 100

Risk exposure

The most significant types of risk related to OPA are credit risk, liquidity
risk and interest-rate risk. The indicators in use shows that OPA's credit risk
exposure is stable. The limit for liquidity risk set by the Board of Directors
has not been exceeded. The liquidity buffer for OP-Pohjola Group, managed by
Pohjola Bank plc, is exploitable by OPA.  OPA has hedged against the interest-
rate risk associated with its housing loan portfolio through interest-rate
swaps, i.e. base rate cash flows from housing loans to be hedged are swapped to
short-term Euribor cash flows. OPA has also swapped the fixed interest rates of
the bonds it has issued to short-term variable rates. The interest-rate risk may
be considered to be low.

Debt securities issued to the public are carried at amortised cost.  On 30 June
2011, the fair value of these debt instruments was approximately EUR 24,362
thousand higher than their carrying amount, based on information available in
markets and employing commonly used valuation techniques. Subordinated
liabilities are carried at amortised cost. Their  fair value are substantially
lower than their carrying amount, but determining fair values reliably is
difficult in the current market situation.
