On 15 September 2020, the Swedish Investment Fund Association updated their reporting guidelines for fixed income funds.
The guidelines already required fixed income funds to disclose the measurement duration in their financial reports and now following the update they also require the disclosure of the measurement Duration Times Spread or “DTS”. A standardized way of presenting credit ratings, for those who choose to, has also been included.
The guidelines, which go further than EU rules, are part of the self-regulation maintained by the association and while not directly applicable to foreign funds, they are generally considered “good practice” in Swedish law.
For further information, please consult the association’s announcement and updated guidelines available here (only in Swedish).
Please feel free to contact us should you require any additional information.
