Sweden to extend maturity of central government debt

News 12 November 2015

The Swedish Government today adopted guidelines for the management of central government debt in 2016. The decision is in accordance with the Debt Office’s proposal and means a slight extension of the debt maturity.

The decision to extend the maturity comes as the cost advantage of short-term borrowing has decreased. Longer maturity results in less variation in the cost of the debt.
