STOCKHOLM, March 16 (Reuters) - Sweden's government has asked the financial watchdog to draw up plans for how to implement capital requirements for pension fund firms, it said on Thursday.
"The government's aim is to find a balanced solution that gives adequate protection for pensioners at the same time as it enables an effective management of occupational pensions," Financial Markets Minister Per Bolund said in a statement.
The Financial Supervisory Authority has until Aug. 15 to draw up proposals for a flat-rate capital requirement as well as a risk-based measure and a minimum capital level.
