Corporate governance and division of responsibility
Our corporate governance is designed to create a sound and effective corporate culture that fosters trust as well as customer and shareholder value. Our governance is based on our employees being familiar with and working together to achieve common goals.
Swed Bank plays a significant role in the financial systems and infrastructure in Sweden and the Baltic countries. Meeting the expectations of our stakeholders and our customers’ financial service needs is the key to creating value and thereby contributing to well-functioning local communities. Through our central business processes, we can also have an impact far beyond our own markets. Sustainability work is therefore integrated in our business model. We are and will remain a secure bank with controlled risk taking that does not compromise the stability of the financial market or society’s sustainable development.
