New log-in for reporting stock exchange information and major shareholding notifications

On 17 February 2020, FI is introducing a new portal for reporting stock exchange information (previously called "financial reports") and major shareholding notifications. The new log-in requires BankID and will completely replace the old method of logging in. However, the reporting procedure itself has not been altered and reports are submitted exactly the same way as before.

In order to be prepared for this transition, it is a good idea to register for an account at FI's Reporting Portal and delegate authorisations well in advance. This possibility will available as of 20 January 2020.

These regulations are based on the EU's Transparency Directive. Shareholders, in conjunction with a triggering transaction, shall notify both the issuing company and Finansinspektionen. Thereafter Finansinspektionen will publish the information.

The notification obligation applies when shareholders acquire or dispose of shares in a listed company and thereby reach, exceed or fall below the 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 50, 66 2/3 and 90 per cent thresholds for voting rights or number of shares in the company.

Report via FI's website

Notifications can be reported on this website using a Swedish e-identification. E-identification requires a Swedish civic registration number and is available via your bank's website.
