Comment regarding media articles

On Monday, September 12, an article was published by Bloomberg regarding Kommuninvest and the Riksbank’s ongoing purchases of government bonds (“asset purchase program”).

The article, and others referring to it, give the impression that Kommuninvest opines on the possible extension of the asset purchase program to include also municipal bonds.

Kommuninvest wants to clarify that we neither recommend nor dissuade such possible purchases. A possible decision would be taken by the Riksbank and might have both positive and negative consequences.
