SNS/SHOF Financepanel: Sweden´s future payments system

Sweden is one of the first countries in the world where the Central bank makes a study on the pros and cons of having a digital currency as a complement to notes and coins. The second such report was published on October 26 and deals with the e-krona. Deputy Governor of the Riksbank, Cecilia Skingsley will present the report on a seminar with the SNS/Swedish House of Finance,  Finance Panel.

The supply of digital payments solutions in Sweden has led to a decreasing use of notes and coins. Are there risks with a cashless society? Should the Riksbank offer an alternative to notes and coins? Are regulations of the payments markets an alternative to an e-krona?

The Finance Panel is a meeting forum for the financial sector, hosted by SNS and the Swedish House of Finance.

Swedish House of Finance
at the Stockholm School of Economics is Sweden’s national research center in financial economics.

Participants
Cecilia Skingsley, Deputy Governor of the Riksbank
Peter Englund, Professor Emeritus at Stockholm School of Economics
Johanna Lybeck Lilja, Executive Advisor at Nordea

 

The meeting was held in Swedish and moderated by Pehr Wissén, Ph.D. economics, senior adviser, Swedish House of Finance at the Stockholm School of Economics.
