Decision regarding the countercyclical buffer rate

Finansinspektionen (FI) shall, in accordance with the Capital Buffers Act (2014:966), set a countercyclical buffer guide and a countercyclical buffer rate for each quarter.

FI monitors developments as they unfold

Finansinspektionen is monitoring the developments following the EU referendum in the UK. We are continuing to maintain a dialogue with the Ministry of Finance, the Riksbank and the Swedish National Debt Office and keep close contact with the Swedish banks. FI always has contingency plans in place to take measures that will contribute to financial stability.

FI aims for unchanged countercyclical buffer rate in June

The next occasion on which Finansinspektionen (FI) will decide on the countercyclical buffer rate is in June. FI's Board of Directors decided on 18 April 2016 that the preparatory work ahead of the next decision shall focus on maintaining the rate at its current level, two per cent.

FI proposes partial waiver for covered bonds

Finansinspektionen proposes partial waiver from the requirements in Article 129 (1)(c) of the Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR) through a change in FI´s regulation (FFFS 2014:12) regarding prudential requirements and capital buffers.

FI open to raising the countercyclical buffer rate in March

The next occasion on which FI will decide on the countercyclical buffer rate is in March. FI's Board of Directors decided on 18 January 2016 that the preparatory work for the decision shall focus on enabling an increase in the rate if such is deemed necessary. The rate is currently at 1.5 per cent.


FI proposes higher requirements for the banks’ liquidity buffers

Sweden shall act ahead of the EU and introduce quantitative requirements regarding the banks’ liquidity buffers. The aim is to ensure that large banks and credit institutions hold sufficient liquid assets to be able to manage short periods without access to market funding. This is proposed by Finansinspektionen in a new regulation.
