Capital needs of Swedish banks as of the first quarter 2015

    Finansinspektionen publishes the capital needs of the ten largest Swedish banks and credit institutions as of the end of the first quarter 2015.

    The disclosure is made in order to illustrate the effect of Finansinspektionen’s total capital requirement, including Pillar 2. Pillar 2 is a collective term for the rules that govern the firms’ internal capital assessments and Finansinspektionen’s supervisory review and evalutation process, where Finansinspektionen’s capital assessment forms an integral part.

    Finansinspektionen decided on strengthened capital requirements in September 2014.

    The disclosure comprises the four large Swedish banks, Handelsbanken, Nordea, SEB and Swedbank, as well as Landshypotek, Länsförsäkringar, Kommuninvest, Svensk Exportkredit (SEK), SBAB and Skandiabanken.
