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.
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.
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.
