The Swedish Financial Market 2014


How does the bond market function in Sweden? How much of Swedish banks’ lending is made up of loans to Swedish households? How do payments work and which systems process them?

The answers to these questions and many others can be found in the annual report The Swedish Financial Market. This publication describes the various roles and functions of the Swedish financial system. It is divided into three chapters: financial markets, financial intermediaries and the financial infrastructure.

In publishing this report, the Riksbank is endeavouring to contribute to increased knowledge of the financial system and its functions. The publication is designed to serve a dual function; as a "reference book" for those needing statistical information and a simple "textbook" for those who wish to learn more about Sweden’s financial system.
