– We assess the risk as small, said the Director General of the Financial Supervisory Authority, Daniel Barr, when he arrived at this morning's specially convened meeting of the Financial Stability Board.
He emphasizes that the authority follows developments closely.
Riksbank Governor Erik Thedéen did not want to comment when he arrived at the Ministry of Finance, where the meeting is being held.
It is Financial Markets Minister Niklas Wykman (Moderates) who called the authorities to the meeting. On the agenda, according to the government's press release about the meeting, is "the risk picture and the stability situation in light of recent events on the banking markets in the US and Europe".
