Following the transaction, the Swedish Benchmark Programme has nine outstanding bonds with maturities between 2021 and 2028. The outstanding volume is approx. SEK 275 billion (USD 32 billion).
– We continue to meet strong demand for our SEK funding. This is not surprising given the pick-up in yield relative to Swedish government bonds.
