Proposal on capital requirements for Swedish banks

The proposal, which is based on assessments from the Riksbank (Swedish central bank) and Finansinspektionen (the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority), means that the banks are to have core Tier 1 capital equivalent to at least 10 per cent of risk-weighted assets in 2013 and 12 per cent of risk-weighted assets in 2015.
