The Riksbank attempts to contribute to increased knowledge of the financial system and its functions. One means of achieving this is through publication of the booklet "The Swedish Financial Market".
The Swedish Financial Market provides an account of all parts of the financial sector. For instance, it describes the stock market, the fixed income and foreign exchange markets, including the derivative markets, the banks, the insurance companies, the securities companies and the large payment systems within Sweden.
In addition to reporting fundamental statistics on the various parts of the financial sector, the brochure attempts to provide clear explanations of how these markets, institutions and systems function and their main tasks within the economy.
The Swedish Financial Market is issued once a year.
