Sweden’s central bank will carry out all of its remaining corporate loan auctions that it announced as an emergency response to the coronavirus epidemic, it said on March 23.

The Sveriges Riksbank announced on March 13 that it would sell Skr500 billion ($49 billion) in corporate loans to banks, in order to support lending to the non-financial sector.
