IMF assessment of the financial sector in Sweden is complete

News During 2022, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) carried out a special assessment of the financial sector in Sweden, a so-called FSAP (Financial Sector Assessment Program). FSAPs are conducted regularly for member countries with systemically important financial markets. The most recent FSAP for Sweden by the IMF was in 2016.

During 2021 and 2022, the IMF delegation carried out visits to Sweden and met, among others, a large number of representatives from the financial stability authorities, the Ministry of Finance, Finansinspektionen, the Riksbank and the Swedish National Debt Office, as well as representatives from Swedish banks and other financial institutions.

The IMF's report (Financial System Stability assessment, FSSA), which was adopted by the IMF Board of Directors on 13 March 2023, provides an account of their main assessments and recommendations. The report has now been published on the IMF's website.
