Unchanged loan demand from NFCs

Abstract icon Danmarks Nationalbank's lending survey shows that the loan demand from the banks' existing corporate customers is overall unchanged from 1st to 2nd quarter of 2020 (net figure is 1.7). This is in contrast to the credit managers having a clear expectation that the demand would increase. Several of the banks mention i.a. the public aid packages as a possible explanation to the expectations not being fulfilled. 7 banks expect, however, that the loan demand increases in 3rd quarter, while 10 banks expect that the demand is unchanged.
