Summary:

This paper discusses the current state of Swedish implementation of the Basel Core Principles for Effective Banking Supervision (BCP). The banking supervisory framework and its implementation in Sweden are in line with many of Basel Core Principles’ essential criteria. However, the assessors found evidence of impairment in Finansinspektionen (FI)’s operational independence. Assessors suggest that staffing levels at FI are an urgent concern to be remedied and also that a revised legal structure ensuring greater independence of FI be considered.
