As we look to the next Forum, Sweden is undoubtedly facing a slowdown. The strength of the Swedish Krona, its relative export-dependence and the continued rising indebtedness of the household sector are concerns, leaving the Riksbank divided on what action to take with policy interest rates. Important issues remain to be addressed if Sweden is to retain and capitalise on its role model status. Nurturing Sweden’s corporate bond market and focusing on the long-term growth outlook, particularly in the local services sector, are a priority.
On Tuesday 3 September 2013, Euromoney will host the second instalment of the Sweden Capital Markets Forum at The Grand Hôtel Stockholm. The Forum will gather together key policymakers, issuers, investors and the sponsoring intermediaries to discuss the future of the Swedish economy and the opportunities on offer to issuers and investors in the Swedish market.
