Continued top grades for Swedish debt management

The Swedish National Debt Office continues to receive high level of confidence among primary dealers and investors, according to TNS Sifo Prospera's survey for 2012. Our communication on the borrowing requirement and funding and our coherent action in the market is our core strengths and receives excellent scores in the survey. Confidence in debt management increased also in 2012. We got close enough to consistently higher scores in all areas. It is, above all, our information on inflation-linked bonds that is valued higher than previous year. Information on Treasury bills and to some extent Government bonds can be improved. - Our work with market commitment and communication on our government securities have been received positively. It is pleasant and satisfying that our primary dealers and investors have continued high confidence for us, says Maria Norström, Head of Funding. The primary dealers and international investors evaluate the Debt Office higher than other debt offices in terms of transparency and ability to make quick decisions. In 2013 we will continue to work to improve our investor relations. We will also further develop our statistics database and website.
