Interim Report 

OP Mortgage Bank Interim Report for January-March 2016

OP Mortgage Bank (OP MB) is part of OP Financial Group and its role is to raise, together with OP Corporate Bank plc (formerly Pohjola Bank plc), funding for the Group from money and capital markets. OP MB is responsible for the Group's funding for the part of covered bond issuance.

Financial standing

The intermediate loans and loan portfolio of OP MB decreased to EUR 10,319 million (10,354)* during the reporting period. The company increased its loan portfolio by buying mortgage-backed loans from OP Financial Group's member banks worth a total of EUR 413 million. OP MB did not issue any new bonds during the reporting period.

The company's financial standing remained stable throughout the reporting period. Operating profit for January- March amounted to EUR 5.4 (5.6) million.

OP MB has used interest rate swaps to hedge against its interest rate risk. Interest rate swaps have been used to swap housing loan interest and interest on issued bonds into the same basis rate. OP MB has entered into all derivative contracts for hedging purposes, with OP Corporate Bank plc being their counterparty.

*The comparatives for 2015 are given in brackets. For income statement and other aggregated figures, January-March 2015 figures serve as comparatives. For balance-sheet and other cross-sectional figures, figures at the end of the previous financial year (31 December 2015) serve as comparatives.  

Collateralisation of bonds issued to the public

On 31 March 2016, loans as collateral in security of the covered bonds issued under the Euro Medium Term Covered Note programme worth EUR 15 billion established on 12 November 2010 under the Laki kiinnityspankkitoiminnasta (688/2010) (Covered Bond Act) totalled EUR 10,006 million.

Capital adequacy

OP MB has presented its capital base and capital adequacy in accordance with the EU capital requirement regulation and directive (EU 575/2013). OP MB uses the Internal Ratings Based Approach (IRBA) to measure its capital adequacy requirement for credit risk. OP MB uses the Standardised Approach to measure its capital adequacy for operational risk.

The Common Equity Tier 1 (CET1) ratio stood at 135.0% (140.2) on 31 March. The CET1 capital requirement is 4.5% and the requirement for the capital conservation buffer is 2.5%, or a total of 7%.

OP MB's highest minimum capital requirement is determined by the Basel I floor. OP MB's capital base exceeded the Basel I floor by EUR 16.4 million in March. Information on the Basel I floor and capital surplus can be found in note "Capital base and capital adequacy".

Joint and several liability of amalgamation

Under the Act on the Amalgamation of Deposit Banks, the amalgamation of the cooperative banks comprises the organisation's central cooperative (OP Cooperative), the central cooperative's member credit institutions and the companies belonging to their consolidation groups as well as credit and financial institutions and service companies in which the above together hold more than half of the total votes. This amalgamation is supervised on a consolidated basis. On 31 March 2016, OP Cooperative's members comprised 177 member cooperative banks as well as OP Corporate Bank plc, Helsinki Area Cooperative Bank (formerly Helsinki OP Bank Ltd), OP Mortgage Bank, OP Card Company Plc and OP Process Services Ltd. As a support measure referred to in the Act on the Amalgamation of Deposit Banks, the central cooperative is liable to pay any of its member credit institutions an amount that is necessary to prevent the credit institution from being placed in liquidation. The central cooperative is also liable for the debts of a member credit institution which cannot be paid using the member credit institution's assets. Companies belonging to the amalgamation are legally liable for each other's debts. The amalgamation's central cooperative, OP Cooperative, is obliged, if necessary, to assist member banks as a support action with a sum that prevents them from going into liquidation. The central cooperative is liable for the debts of a member bank which cannot be paid using the member bank's capital.

Each member bank is liable to pay a proportion of the amount which the central cooperative has paid to either another member bank as part of support action or to a creditor of such member bank in payment of an amount overdue which the creditor has not received from the member bank. Furthermore, in the case of the central cooperative's default, a member bank has unlimited refinancing liability for the central cooperative's debts as referred to in the Co-operatives Act.

Each member bank's liability for the amount the central cooperative has paid to the creditor on behalf of a member bank is divided between the member banks in proportion to their last adopted balance sheets. OP Financial Group's insurance companies do not fall within the scope of joint and several liability.

According to Section 25 of the Covered Bond Act, the holder of a covered bond has the right to receive a payment for the entire term of the bond from the assets entered as collateral before other receivables without this being prevented by OP MB's liquidation or bankruptcy.

Personnel

On 31 March, OP MB had five employees. The Bank purchases all the most important support services from OP Cooperative and its Group members, reducing the its need for its own personnel.

Administration

The Board composition is as follows:

Chairman       Harri Luhtala                         Chief Financial Officer, OP Cooperative
Members        Elina Ronkanen-Minogue      Head of Asset and Liability Management and Group Treasury, OP Cooperative
                       Hanno Hirvinen                     Group Treasurer, OP Corporate Bank plc    
                     
OP MB's Managing Director is Lauri Iloniemi and Hanno Hirvinen is his deputy.

Risk exposure

The most typical types of risks related to OP MB are credit risk, structural funding risk, liquidity risk and interest rate risk. The key credit risk indicators in use show that OP MB's credit risk exposure is stable and the limit for liquidity risk set by the Board of Directors has not been exceeded. The liquidity buffer for OP Financial Group, managed by OP Corporate Bank plc, is exploitable by OP MB. OP MB has used interest rate swaps to hedge against its interest rate risk. Interest rate swaps have been used to swap housing loan interest and interest on issued bonds into the same basis rate. The interest rate risk may be considered to be low.

Outlook

The existing issuance programme makes it possible to issue new covered bonds in 2016. It is expected that the Bank's capital adequacy will remain strong, risk exposure favourable and the overall quality of the loan portfolio good.

Accounting policies

The Interim Report for 1 January-31 March 2016 has been prepared in accordance with IAS 34 (Interim Financial Reporting).

This Interim Report is based on unaudited figures. Given that all figures have been rounded off, the sum total of individual figures may deviate from the presented sums.

OP MB's related parties include the parent company OP Cooperative and its subsidiaries, the OP Financial Group pension insurance companies OP Bank Group Pension Fund and OP Bank Group Pension Foundation, and the company's administrative personnel. Standard loan terms and conditions are applied to loans granted to the related parties. Loans are tied to generally used reference interest rates. The financial year saw no major changes in related-party transactions.
