Sveriges Riksbank calls for higher risk weights on mortgages

Stockholm in Sweden

According to the Riksbank, the Swedish financial system is stable, but the size and concentration of the Swedish banking sector, as well as the banks' extensive market funding, "create vulnerabilities that may have a negative impact on financial stability".
