Swedish National Debt Office opens database to investors
Riksgälden, the Swedish National Debt Office, has opened a statistics database for investors to create their own reports and analyses directly from the Debt Office’s own data.
Users can create reports containing tables, graphics, with details about the country’s sovereign debt and debt instruments, the Debt Office said.
Thomas Olofsson, department head for debt management, said “An easily accessible website which provides relevant and reliable information raises the level of service for our investors and primary dealers.”
Unni Jerndal, head of communications, added: “The Debt Office is a businesslike, open and contemporary authority. The statistics database is yet another tool to spread detailed information via www.riksgalden.se.”
The Debt Office is seeking feedback from users in order to improve the database, which will start by publishing data on central government debt and its components on a monthly basis. In time it is intended to move towards daily publishing of data on all government securities, as well as adding data on monthly net borrowing requirements and auctions.
