Sweden – FI Net Short Position Reporting

Sweden – FI Net Short Position Reporting

On 30 June 2020, SWE FI issued update on new reporting system.

  • In autumn of 2020, FI will introduce a new reporting system for short net positions.
  • System is Known as the Blanking Web; logging in will be done with the bank ID in the system that now collects most of the reporting to FI: the Reporting Portal.

Replaces E-mail and Form Reporting

  • At Blankningswebben, holders of short net positions, and reporters for position holders, will be able to report information about the positions to FI themselves.
  • The information is stored in a database and the information that is to be published according to the regulations will be displayed on a new website at fi.se.
  • It will also be possible to see previous positions and to recall incorrectly reported ones.
  • Transition to Blankningswebben means that it won't be possible to report via e-mail.

Start Preparing on Time

  • The blanking web will be available at some point in the autumn; SWE FI will return with more information as the transition to the new system begins to approach.
  • Until then, SWE FI recommends the creation of user accounts in Reporting Portal and delegating permissions to those who will be able to report for position holders.
  • It is important to make these preparations well in advance of reporting positions.
