It is important that laws and regulations covering the financial sector, as well as market participants’ risk-taking, are compatible with the economy’s requirement of financial stability. The Riksbank is not the supervisory body for the financial sector and has few formal means of influencing market behaviour. On the other hand, the Riksbank can contribute knowledge and information. By conducting a dialogue with market participants and by expressing its views in speeches, articles and opinions on draft legislation and reports in this field, the Riksbank has the possibility of exercising informal influence.
You can find speeches, articles and opinions connected with financial stability in the menu on the left.
The Riksbank also participates in international bodies that work on producing joint regulations for banking supervision, such as the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision.
