Swedbank is a major figure in the financial market and our size makes us systemically significant. This entails responsibility. As a significant part of the financial circulation system, we help society to develop and grow.
Just as we can do good we can also cause damage is we mismanage the bank. In the past few years, Swedbank has restructured in order to become a secure and reliable part of a sound and stable financial market. We have endorsed regulatory proposals by decision makers, authorities and institutions with the aim of finding rules for a new and more responsible market. A bank is an integral part of society.
Via our customers we are stakeholders in corporate investments and the homes people buy. When times are good for our customers and our home markets, times are good for us. That we engage in issues related to social problems, the environment and growth is part of our business idea as the bank can never be stronger than the society in which we do business.
