Open database at www.riksgalden.se

19 September 2012 - Press release

The Swedish National Debt Office (Riksgälden) opens a statistics database, which will be available for market players looking for information on www.riksgalden.se. This new service gives investors the opportunity to create their own reports and analyses directly from our data storage.

With the help of the new statistics database, investors gain a current overview of our business in the form of tables and graphics. Information can be simply filtered and broken down into detail, and presents a different perspective on the central government debt and our instruments.

"An easily accessible website which provides relevant and reliable information raises the level of service for our investors and primary dealers," says Thomas Olofsson, department head for debt management at the Debt Office.

In addition to the new statistics database, we improved the search engine at www.riksgalden.se earlier this year so that information about the Debt Office's business can be quickly and easily found.

"The Debt Office is a businesslike, open and contemporary authority. The statistics database is yet another tool to spread detailed information via www.riksgalden.se," says Unni Jerndal, head of communications at the Debt Office.

The system is under development and feedback from users is welcomed in our efforts to improve and develop our statistics database.

The first step is for us to publish the central government debt and its components on a monthly basis. In a later phase, we will also publish daily information on all government securities. In time, statistics about monthly net borrowing requirements, auctions, plus our prognoses will also be available on our statistics database.
