Swedish Export Credit Corporation is ranked one of the world’s safest banks

Swedish Export Credit Corporation (SEK) that finances Swedish exporters, their subsidiaries and foreign customers, has been positioned as the 9th Safest Bank in the World, by Global Finance.

The American magazine Global Finance annually ranks the world’s 50 safest banks. Winners were selected through an evaluation of long-term foreign currency ratings from Moody’s, Standard & Poor’s and Fitch, of the 500 largest banks worldwide.

“We are proud to be one of the safest banks in the world. SEK has a high level of trust and a good reputation among global investors.”


Germany’s KfW is in the top on the list, followed by the Swiss Zürcher Kantonalbank and Dutch BNG Bank. European banks dominate the top of the World’s Safest Banks in 2020, taking the first ten positions.

The Best Bank Awards is announced on October 19 during the IMF/World Bank Annual Meetings.
