Auction volumes limited to SEK 500 million in the first two inflation-linked issues this year

20 January 2010 - Press release

The Swedish National Debt Office plans to issue inflation-linked bonds for SEK 10 billion during 2010 divided into 10 auctions. After comments from our primary dealers, we have now decided to limit the auction size to SEK 500 million in the first two auctions taking place in February. The transmission to increased funding in inflation-linked bonds will thereby be done gradually. The total auction volume for 2010 will be unchanged.

The next forecast for the funding requirement will be published on 3 March. Until then, it is worthwhile considering if we should increase the frequency of auctions with smaller volumes than previously announced. Feedback from market participants is appreciated.
