Government securities

The Debt Office has a diversified borrowing strategy. We mainly borrow in Swedish kronor using government bonds, inflation-linked bonds and T-bills.

Government bonds are the Debt Office’s largest and most important debt instrument. Government bonds are therefore prioritized in the borrowing. Borrowing in inflation-linked bonds is a complement to government bonds. T-bills are used to manage seasonal fluctuations in net borrowing requirement and forecast deviations. Foreign currency bonds are a way of financing the central government debt and broadening the investor base as well as of creating exposure in foreign currency.
