The effects represent the instantaneous effects of a one-off change in the underlying market variable on the fair values as of 31 December, 2012. The sensitivity analysis includes the effects of derivative positions. All sensitivities are calculated before taxes. The debt issued by Sampo Group companies is not included.

For example, a rise in interest rates would reduce the values of financial instruments causing a fall in the Sampo Group's equity. On the other hand, the effect on adjusted solvency capital would be positive due to the fact that the market value of technical provisions would decrease as a result of applying a higher discount rate.
