The Financial Stability Council is a forum for representatives from the Government, FI, the Swedish National Debt Office and the Riksbank to regularly discuss matters pertaining to financial stability, the need for measures to counteract the build-up of financial imbalances and, in the event of a financial crisis, the need for measures to address such a situation.
At the Financial Stability Council meeting of 15 June, Finansinspektionen presented its views on the future structure of banks' capital requirements.
When representatives of the Government, Finansinspektionen (the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority), the Riksbank and the Swedish National Debt Office met on 15 June in the Financial Stability Council, the authorities all contributed reports as bases for discussion. A summary of the report on driving forces behind household indebtness is now published.
In this report, Finansinspektionen, Sveriges Riksbank and the Swedish National Debt Office present a general description of the driving forces behind the rise in household indebtedness. A central conclusion in the report is that indebtedness is largely linked to developments on the housing market.
Finansinspektionen and the Riksbank have held their fourth meeting within the framework of the Council for Cooperation on Macroprudential Policy. The authorities shared a status report and discussed potential risks to the financial system, among other topics.
FI and the Riksbank's Council for Cooperation on Macroprudential Policy discussed that the situation on the financial markets is showing signs of optimism despite the weak development in the economy as a whole. The Swedish banks currently have good access to market funding and their resilience is good.
Finansinspektionen (FI) and the Riksbank have held their second meeting within the framework of the Council for Cooperation on Macroprudential Supervision.
