The risks to financial stability in Sweden have increased, according to the Riksbank. One factor behind the development is the slowdown in the global economy.
The central bank has warned that both asset bubbles and debt are increasing in an unsustainable manner and calls for an increase in the resilience of the financial system.. It also wants to see measures within housing and taxation policy for handling the poorly functioning housing market.
SvD also reports today that the Governor of the Riksbank, Stefan Ingves, believes that more money is required to monitor Swedish banks and he is critical of how Nordic and Baltic countries are failing in their cooperation against money laundering.
