Abstract
This Selected Issues paper discusses measures taken to enable timely macroprudential action in Sweden.

The supervisory authority imposed a loan-to-value limit of 85 percent for new mortgage loans in 2010, with the soundness principle as the legal basis for this measure.

Following an expansion of the regulatory toolkit, a range of capital buffers have also been established and subsequently expanded
