Sveriges Riksbank: Unchanged risk level in spring risk survey

The Swedish financial markets are functioning well according to the
market participants who responded to the Riksbank's risk survey in
spring 2014. The respondents consider that the overall risk level is
unchanged compared to six months ago, but that risks related to
emerging economies have increased, at the same time as the risks
linked to developments in the euro area have declined. A larger
number of respondents than before have had an increased propensity to
take risk.

The risks at a global level have changed somewhat

Most of the respondents consider that the overall risk level in the
Swedish financial system is relatively unchanged, compared with six
months ago, but that the risks at a global level have changed
somewhat. They consider that there is now a greater probability that
risks linked to emerging markets will be realised, although the
assessment is that any consequences for the Swedish financial system
is limited. The risks linked to developments in the euro area are
still regarded as significant, although respondents feel that the
probability that they will be realised has declined somewhat over the
past six months. The survey respondents still take a serious view of
the possible consequences of the risks linked to a high level of debt
in the Swedish household sector.

Propensity to take risk has increased slightly during the period

Just under half of the respondents state that their propensity to take
risk is unchanged compared to six months ago. A larger number of
participants than before consider that they have had an increased
propensity to take risk. In particular respondents on the
fixed-income market state the reason for this as the increasing
demands to generate a return. Some participants also point out that
investors searching for yield are seeking more risky investment
alternatives, such as corporate bonds.

Since spring 2008 the Riksbank has carried out its own twice-yearly
survey of participants in the Swedish fixed-income and foreign
exchange markets. The questions in the survey refer to the
participants' views on risk and also to their opinions regarding the
functioning of the Swedish financial markets. The Riksbank's Risk
Survey spring 2014 was carried out in March. It can be downloaded as
a PDF from the Riksbank's website, www.riksbank.se.
