More details on the government bond sales and Riksbank certificates

  • In terms of government bonds sales:
    • From April: SEK3bln of nominal government bonds per month
    • SEK500mln of index-linked government bonds per month
    • Sales "shall mainly concern government bonds that mature in 2027 or later"
