Board of Directors and Executive Management

Board of Directors and Executive Management

SEK is wholly owned by the Swedish government. We represent a good deal for the government as we’ve generated a profit since SEK was founded in 1962. This is something we’re proud of.


Our owner, the Swedish government, participates in our annual general meeting and is represented on the Board of Directors. The government’s ownership of SEK is overseen by the Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation.
