An efficient, stable financial system is necessary for the economy to function and grow. A serious crisis in the system could lead to extensive costs for the economy and society. One of FI’s primary tasks is therefore to promote a stable financial system that is characterised by a high level of confidence and well-functioning markets that meet the needs of households and firms for financial services.
Financial stability means that the financial system is able to uphold its core functions,
- mediating payments,
- transforming savings into financing, and
- managing risk,
and that it is resilient to shocks that may threaten these functions.
Here you will find information about the work FI does to promote financial stability. The information is divided into FI's activity areas in the menu to the left.
