Funding Strategy

The main goal for Region Stockholm's debt management is to minimize the long-term financing costs for the county. At the same time, the interest rate is mitigated, and currency risk is strictly limited.

The debt management of Region Stockholm is governed by the financial policy as decided by the Region Stockholm Assembly.

In its debt management, Region Stockholm uses derivatives, mainly interest rate swaps based on a conservative financial policy. For example, open currency risk positions are not allowed in the debt portfolio. Derivative contracts are only entered with approved credit-worthy counterparties, and any excess liquidity is invested in safe and liquid securities based on the financial policy.
