Sveriges Riksbank is the central bank of Sweden, and it operates independently from the European Central Bank (ECB). Sweden is a member of the European Union (EU). While Sweden is an EU member, it has not adopted the euro as its official currency, which means it does not participate in the Eurosystem and the monetary policy decisions of the ECB. Instead, the Riksbank manages the monetary policy for the Swedish krona.

  • Riksbank is a member of the European System of Central Banks (ESCB). ESCB comprises the European Central Bank (ECB) and the national central banks of all EU Member States.
