Maturity steering of the central government debt is being merged

15 November 2018

Today, the Government adopted the guidelines for the management of the central government debt in 2019. In accordance with the Debt Office’s proposal, the steering of the maturity of the krona debt is being merged.

Consequently, the maturity interval for the krona debt will be changed to 4–6.5 years. The Debt Office emphasised in its proposed guidelines that a common benchmark for all krona debt provides a better overview of the level of risk.

The steering of the composition of the central government debt remains unchanged.
