Proposals

Election of the Chairman of the Meeting, item 2

The Board of Directors proposes that Sven Hagströmer be appointed Chairman of
the General Meeting.

Resolution regarding the issue of warrants intended for incentive programmes,
item 8 a-c

The Board of Directors proposes, in order to ensure the company's ability to
retain and recruit skilled and committed personnel, that the General Meeting
approve the issue, in what constitutes a deviation from the shareholders'
preferential rights, of a maximum total of 1,470,000 warrants, each of which
shall grant entitlement to subscribe for one (1) ordinary share in the company.
The warrants will be issued in three discrete series (hereinafter referred to as
subsidiary programmes 1, 2 and 3). The three subsidiary programmes comprise
parts of a single incentive programme and it is proposed, therefore, that the
resolutions in accordance with items a-c on the agenda be mutually dependent.

It is proposed that the warrants be issued on what are, essentially, the
following terms:

A maximum of 490,000 warrants shall be issued in every subsidiary programme.

Entitlement to subscribe for the warrants will only be granted to Avanza
Förvaltning AB with the right and obligation to transfer the warrants to
existing or future employees of Avanza Bank Holding AB or its subsidiaries. The
number of warrants that persons within the respective categories are entitled to
acquire is shown in the full version of the Board's proposal, which is available
as described below. The company's Board of Directors shall decide on the final
allocation within the framework presented in the proposal. Maximum allocation
cannot be guaranteed. The warrants will be acquired in return for payment of an
arm's length premium to be determined by the Board in accordance with customary
calculation models.

The Board of Directors proposes, in conjunction herewith, that the General
Meeting approve the transfer of warrants by the subsidiary company within the
framework of the proposed subsidiary programmes.

Every warrant shall grant entitlement to subscribe for one (1) new ordinary
share in the company at an issue price corresponding to an amount totalling 120
per cent of the weighted average of transactions in the company's shares
completed in the marketplace in which the company has its primary listing
(currently NASDAQ OMX Stockholm). The weighted average shall be calculated for
all auto-matched transactions and all transactions in opening and closing calls,
irrespective of size. The issue price shall, however, at a minimum, be an amount
that corresponds to the share's nominal value. The issue price for shares
subscribed for under subsidiary programmes 1, 2 and 3 shall be calculated on the
basis of the prices on 25 August 2014, 25 August 2015, and 25 August 2016,
respectively.

Subscription for shares in accordance with the terms for subsidiary programmes
1, 2 and 3 may, respectively, occur between 25 August 2017 and 1 September 2017,
27 August 2018 and 3 September 2018, and 26 August 2019 and 2 September 2019,
inclusive.

The company's share capital will, in conjunction with full exercise of the
warrants issued as part of subsidiary programmes 1-3, increase by a maximum of
SEK 3,675,000, divided between 1,470,000 shares, corresponding to a dilution
effect of approximately five per cent (5%).

Provision of documents

The Board's full proposal as presented above and documents pursuant to chapter
14 section 8 of the Swedish Companies Act, will be made available at the
company's offices no later than Friday, 23 May 2014 and will be sent out to
those shareholders who have notified the company that they wish to receive such
information from the company. All of these documents will also, as of the same
date, be available on the company's website, www.avanza.se.

Details of the number of shares and votes and of the company's holdings of its
own shares

The total number of shares and votes in the company on the date of issue for
this convening notice was 28,873,747. All shares issued are ordinary shares. The
company has bought back none of its own shares.

Shareholders' right to request information

The Board of Directors and the Managing Director shall, if so requested by any
shareholder and if, in the opinion of the Board, it may be done without causing
material damage to the company, supply details at the General Meeting of
circumstances that may impact the appraisal of an item on the agenda.
