Updated 2018 funding forecast

Kommuninvest has published an updated funding forecast of SEK 110-125 billion for the 2018 calendar year. The previous forecast for funding longer than 1 year duration was SEK 85-100 billion (USD 10-11 billion). The forecast is based on the expected new lending, renewal of maturing loans and renewals of maturing outstanding borrowings, as well as on an assessment of the size of the liquidity reserve at the end of 2018.

The revised funding requirement is a result of greater demand for new loans from Kommuninvest’s members and customers. In addition to generally good demand, demand for longer maturities has increased. To date, Kommuninvest has borrowed the equivalent of SEK 87 billion in long-term funding.

Long-term funding will continue to have a focus on benchmark funding in SEK and USD, including green funding, as well as Uridashi funding in the Japanese market.

Of the SEK 600 billion in municipal sector external loan debt, half is today financed via Kommuninvest. Kommuninvest continues to grow as a result of a larger market share and the increased welfare investments by Swedish municipalities and county councils/regions.
