The sharp slowdown in the economy as a result of the covid-19 pandemic has challenged the banking sector on many levels. Above all, the need for innovation and rapid mobility has increased; not least because restrictions and distancing have forced both customers and companies to be digitized in earnest.
At SvD Bank Summit 2021, we take note of important lessons from the turbulent time that we are now hopefully leaving behind, but we are still looking ahead. What does the future hold for the banks and what way forward is it that applies in the aftermath of the crisis?

The morning will be characterized by a macroeconomic focus, where we discuss current and future challenges for both Sweden's and the EU's financial markets. On the spot, we get to listen to the Governor of the Riksbank, Stefan Ingves, who explains the current monetary policy and the challenges the Riksbank sees in the near future for the Swedish economy. We also look at economic policy in the United States as well as at EU level and its effects in the Swedish banking sector.
