Systemic risk buffer requirement set to MuniFin

On 29 March 2023, the Finnish Financial Supervisory Authority (FIN-FSA) has, in accordance with the sections 4a and b, Chapter 10 of the act on Credit Institutions, set a systemic risk buffer requirement of 1.0 per cent to MuniFin. The decision will take effect on 1 April 2024, and it is equivalent to the requirements set to other Finnish banks at the same time.

MuniFin clearly meets all capital requirements set to it.
