Temporary monetary policy counterparties

To avoid robust companies being knocked out as a result of the corona pandemic, the Riksbank has decided to enlarge the circle of monetary policy counterparties temporarily. Institutions other than monetary policy counterparties will thereby be given the opportunity to participate in the previously decided programme for lending to companies via banks.

On 26 March 2020, the Riksbank decided to grant Swedish credit institutions under the supervision of Finansinspektionen the opportunity to become temporary monetary policy counterparties to the Riksbank. At the same time, the decision was taken to allow temporary monetary policy counterparties to participate in the Riksbank’s programme for onward lending to non-financial corporations.

Credit institutions can now apply to become temporary monetary policy counterparties and special conditions apply to them. The general terms for credit for onward lending to non-financial corporations has also been updated to make it possible for temporary monetary policy counterparties to submit bids. Read more in the document under related content.

The application to become a temporary monetary policy counterparty must be made using a special registration form (see the link under related content) which is to be sent to tpm_ansokan@riksbank.se

Participation in the programme for lending to companies via banks

Participation in the programme for lending to companies via banks requires, in addition to an approved application to become a temporary monetary policy counterparty, that the counterparty registers for the programme.
