Financial stability

One of the tree main objectives of Danmarks Nationalbank is to contribute to maintaining the stability of the financial system. This is done by assessing financial stability, overseeing payment systems, compiling financial statistics and managing the central government’s borrowing and debt.

Danmarks Nationalbank defines financial stability as a condition whereby the overall financial system is robust enough for any problems within the sector not to spread and prevent the financial markets from functioning as providers of capital and financial services.

In Danmarks Nationalbank's annual publication Financial stability, Danmarks Nationalbank assesses financial stability in Denmark, with emphasis on financial institutions, financial markets and payment systems. The analyses are based on banks in the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority's groups 1 and 2 and stress tests of these banks. Topical issues of relevance to financial stability are also discussed.
