Financial Stability Council

The Financial Stability Council is a forum for meetings between representatives of the Ministry of Finance, the Financial Supervisory Authority, the Riksbank and the Debt Office. The council normally meets twice a year and discusses stability matters including the need for precautionary measures to counter the build-up of financial imbalances.

In a financial crisis the council is to meet more often to discuss what measures are needed to deal with the crisis. The council does not make any decisions. The Government and the authorities make decisions independently within their own areas of responsibility.

Open agenda and minutes

The agenda for a coming meeting of the council is posted on the council's website one week before the meeting. Minutes of a meeting are published no later than two weeks after the meeting.
