Riksbank asks government for recapitalisation

Governor called for stronger self-financing capacity in January

Sveriges Riksbank

Sweden’s central bank has asked the government for Skr43.7 billion krona ($4.1 billion) to restore its equity, it announced today (April 2).

The cash injection would restore Sveriges Riksbank’s equity level to Skr41.7 billion, its “statutory base level”. The base level is a middle point between the maximum (Skr62.6 billion) and minimum (Skr20.9 billion) equity level prescribed in the 2023 Riksbank Act.
