Finansinspektionen has responded to the Commission Consultation Document on FinTech: A more competitive and innovative European Financial Sector.
With regard to the proposed directive on amendments to the Auditor Directive (2006/43/EC), Finansinspektionen does not have any objections to the proposal presented by the European Commission.
The newly implemented Resolution Act introduces new rules and requirements, including requirements about loss absorbing liabilities. In its response to the Debt Office’s proposal, FI says it is important that such new rules and requirements are consistent with Finansinspektionen’s (FI) supervision and the currently applicable capital requirements.
FI as submitted its consultation response regarding Review of the Riksbank's Monetary Policy 2010–2015 (2015/16:RFR6) conducted by Marvin Goodfriend and Mervyn King on commission from the Committee on Finance. The consultation response assesses the reviewers' recommendations regarding financial stability and the interplay between monetary policy and financial stability.
Finansinspektionen agrees with several of the main principles behind the Swedish Government's Official Report's proposal to implement the Solvency 2 directive into Swedish law.
Finansinspektionen has been given the opportunity to submit feedback on a proposal from the European Commission for an EU Directive on the annual financial statements, consolidated financial statements and related reports of certain types of undertakings.
