Pengar i Sverige AB forms an IT Company with TietoEnator Pengar i Sverige AB, which was established by the Swedish Central Bank to undertake money management in Sweden, has formed the company 'Pengar i Sverige IT' AB together with TietoEnator. The new company will be responsible for the operation and development of the IT systems. The establishment of Pengar i Sverige IT AB (Money in Sweden IT) is in line with TietoEnator's strategy to create partnership companies with customers in the financial markets, for development and operations of business critical financial solutions. Pengar i Sverige was established by the Swedish Central Bank (Sveriges Riksbank) on 1 June last year in order to render the management of notes and coins in Sweden more efficient.

"We have delivered consultant services to the Swedish Central Bank for a long time, and it is therefore pleasing that our previous collaboration has developed into a partnership and joint venture", says Gunnar Forss, MD of Entra e-finance Partner from TietoEnator group.
