STOCKHOLM May 19 Nordea the Nordic
region's biggest bank has decided to move its headquarters from
Sweden with the board set to take a formal decision on May 30,
daily Svenska Dagbladet said on Friday, citing sources.
A Nordea spokesman said no formal decision regarding a move
had been made yet.
Nordea, Europe's eighth-biggest bank by market
capitalization, had threatened to move HQ if the Swedish
government went ahead with plans to hike fees payed into a fund
to shield tax payers in a banking future crisis.
