          SEB : SEB ranks as leading corporate bank in Nordic region

For the first time in the three-year history of the ranking, SEB is not only
the leading corporate bank in Sweden but also in the Nordic region in TNS Sifo
Prospera's Corporate Banking 2012 Nordics client survey. SEB is also the bank
in the Nordics most recommended by its clients.

"Over the last three years, SEB has invested in improving our service and our
holistic offering to Nordic clients outside of Sweden. This has resulted in
300 new clients and a clear position as the Nordic corporate bank. Our leading
position in Sweden has been strengthened further the past year. This survey is
confirmation that our clients value our business model, and strengthens us
even further in our ambition to establish a long-term partnership with our
clients," says Magnus Carlsson, head of SEB's Merchant Banking division.

Prospera's Corporate Banking 2012 Nordics survey is based on interviews with
CFOs, treasurers and other key positions at 262 large corporates in the
region.
