On behalf of the Riksbank, Statistics Sweden (SCB) will publish monthly statistics on Swedish issuers' securities borrowing, starting on April 2013.
These figures will include all issues of securities carried out by the public and private sectors in Sweden and abroad.
The figures are based both on direct reporting of securities issues by the reporting entities and on figures received from Euroclear Sverige AB.
Among other information, the published statistics will include details of currencies, maturities and interest-rate conditions. These figures will be used by the Riksbank in its monetary policy and financial stability work, among other areas.
Questions concerning the securities statistics can be answered by the Statistics Division of the Riksbank or by Statistics Sweden.
