Communication to contribute to the stability and efficiency of the financial system
The Riksbank can take no coercive measures to influence participants in the financial system. Instead, the Riksbank primarily exerts influence by communication, both in public and in dialogue with participants. In this, the Riksbank strives to be as open and clear as possible, for example concerning the risks the Riksbank has identified in the system.
The Riksbank’s views on the stability and efficiency of the financial system are communicated in several different ways
In the Financial Stability Report, the Riksbank presents its assessment of financial stability in Sweden and draws attention to risks that may develop into threats to this.
At meetings with participants in Sweden and abroad, issues of stability and efficiency in the financial system are discussed.
The members of the Executive Board hold speeches and participate in public debates where they share their views of the stability and efficiency of the financial system.
The Riksbank also gives its views on issues related to stability and efficiency in the financial system in various publications issued by the Riksbank: Economic Commentaries, Riksbank Studies, staff memos and articles in the journal Sveriges Riksbank Economic Review.
At meetings of the Financial Stability Council, the participants discuss financial stability issues and how to counteract financial imbalances.
The Riksbank also spreads knowledge of national and international regulations and expresses its view of these regulations.
