Financial decision-maker sentiment: Sweden

An ongoing look at how the attitudes of financial decision makers in Sweden are evolving during the COVID-19 pandemic.

About half of financial decision makers in Sweden describe their current financial situation as weak and most think it will remain the same in the next three months, versus getting weaker or stronger. Thirty-five percent are concerned or somewhat concerned about their job security and half of consumers have four months or fewer in savings to live off. Most feel banks are performing per their expectations and would like them to reduce payments on loans and provide financial advice.
