Kommuninvest has published a funding forecast of SEK 100-120 billion for long-term funding in 2019 (longer than one year duration). 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 2019.
As of 26 November, Kommuninvest had completed SEK 131.5 billion in long-term funding, compared with a forecast of SEK 130 bn (USD 14.4 bn) for the full-year 2018.
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.
Swedish municipal sector external loan debt exceeds SEK 600 billion, of which more than half is 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.
