Sturlugata 8 in Reykjavik, the entire property, permanent number.

MORTGAGE.         PRINCIPAL               CLAIMANT                DATE OF ISSUE
<S>               <C>                     <C>                     <C>
I                 ISK 1,400,000,000
                  USD 4,000,000,-         Islandsbanki-FBA hf.    21.12.2001

The amount in Icelandic kronur is linked to the consumer price index, based on
the base index 218.5 points, and is adjusted proportionally to the index, but
never to a lower index than the base index of this bond, in addition to penalty
interest and all costs resulting from collecting activites.

      The issuer/mortgagor is not aware of any other registered liens or
encumbrances on the property.

      The lien extends to the insurance amount of the mortgaged property and the
lien holder is entitled, should any insurance be paid out, to request that the
insurance company pay to him directly as much of the insurance amount as would
cover the debt secured by this lien together with all interest, penalty interest
and collecting costs. In such an event the lien holder has full
authorisation to take delivery of the insurance money and dispose of it as
payment for the debts. The mortgagor is under obligation to insure the mortgaged
property and provide the lien holder with documented evidence that the secured
property is properly insured; failing this the lien holder may, without any
obligation to do so, insure the property at the mortgagor's expense and shall
thereby hold a lien on the property for the total amount of paid-out costs for
insurance as well as for the debt itself.

The property is mortgaged with all appurtenances, including subsequent
additions, cf. Articles 16-18 of Act No 75/1997 on Contractual Liens.

      The mortgagor is under obligation to ensure that all necessary safety
measures required by applicable laws and regulations, as current at any time,
are observed with respect to the mortgaged property. The mortgagor shall also
take responsibility for the maintenance of the pledged property and ensure, to
the extent possible, that it maintains its value so that the mortgage rights are
not curtailed.

        In the event of any default on the payment of instalments or interest of
the debt(s) covered by this lien or any other breach of the obligations of the
issuer/mortgagor to the lien holder, the total amount of the debt(s) may be
called in immediately and without notice and this mortgage may then be
foreclosed. The same applies if the value of the secured property is
substantially reduced, there is a change in ownership of the property without
the mortgagee's consent or if the issuer's/mortgagor's other creditors enforce
any claims against the property, or if the issuer's/mortgagor's or his
guarantor's estate securing the debt, one or more, enter into receivership or
seek composition.

      The issuer shall pay the stamp duty and registration tax for this lien

      In the event of any dispute in respect of this lien or the debt that it
covers such dispute shall be referred to the District Court of Reykjavik.

      In witness whereof, the signatures of the issuer, the mortgagor and the
spouse of the registered owner (issuer/mortgagor) are attached hereto in the
presence of witnesses.
