SEB Baltic Household Outlook. Recovery in household finances on track but uncertainty remains

965 views

Published on

Economic growth has led to an increase in employment and real wages in Estonia and Latvia. The earnings abroad and remittances have added significant amount of funds to the households’ disposable income in all three countries. Nevertheless despite the improvement of situation, the modest consumer confidence in Estonia eliminating the large gap between Estonia and other Baltic countries, supports the strengthening of the households’ balance sheets reflecting in the largest savings of Estonian households, while in Latvia and Lithuania deposits dropped. However demographic situation with low birth rate, population ageing and emigration involves potential long term problems of all Baltic countries with the financing of pension and social system. Under such circumstances the mandatory pension scheme and voluntary private pensions plays a more significant role and can ensure a larger financial security in retirement. These are key findings arising from the newest SEB Baltic Household Outlook.
