The key financial vulnerabilities in Sweden, with its low public debt levels, come from high household borrowing and its banks' exposure to the highly priced residential and commercial property markets, the Riksbank said in its Financial Stability Report (FSR) published Wednesday. "A crisis in the property market can threaten the stability of the Swedish financial system," it said, with highly leveraged property firms vulnerable to companies cutting back on office usage, hitting the commercial property sector.
A rise in market interest rates could create a doom loop, with falling property prices hitting consumers and banks, exposed to the property sector, could tighten credit. The Riksbank's FSR is only an advisory document, with the central bank not involved directly in bank regulation.
