Norway banks should not be allowed to pay dividends for now, regulator says

Wed 25th March, 2020 7:09am
OSLO, March 25 (Reuters) - Norwegian banks and insurers
should not be allowed to pay dividends for the time being, the
country's Financial Supervisory Authority said in a proposal to
the finance ministry on Wednesday.
    A final decision will be made by the ministry, the regulator
    Banks could face significant losses due to the coronavirus
outbreak, while insurers risk lower income due to a fall in
interest rates and could also see a drop in asset values, the
FSA said.
