The Riksbank's Annual Report 2006
In its Annual Report presented to the the Riksdag (the Swedish parliament) today, the Riksbank reported a profit of SEK 7.9 billion for 2006. The positive result is mainly due to the interest income generated by the bonds in the currency reserve.
The Annual Report contains a report on monetary policy during 2004-2006, showing that inflation in 2005 and 2006 remained below the target of 2 per cent. This was mainly due to a larger rise in productivity than expected.
