New reporting system for short selling to be launched this week

Report/Flag

Please complete the required fields.



This week, FI will launch a new reporting system for the reporting of net short positions: the Short Selling Online Reporting tool.

The Short Selling Online Reporting tool will be available this week for holders of net short positions and rapporteurs of these positions. We will announce the exact date during the week. In conjunction with the launch of the Short Selling Online Reporting tool, the Short Selling Register will also be updated.

Begin preparations

We would like to remind all holders of net short positions and rapporteurs of these positions to create user accounts in the Reporting Portal and delegate authorisation to persons who will report on behalf of the position holders.

Holders of net short positions and rapporteurs of these positions report the positions themselves in the Short Selling Online Reporting tool. Users log in to the tool using Bank ID via FI’s Reporting Portal, which is the hub for most reporting to the authority.

It will be possible to submit the reports by email for two weeks after the new Short Selling Online Reporting tool has launched. After then, it will no longer be possible to report net short positions by submitting a form via email.

Step-by-step instructions

In order to be able to report positions via the Short Selling Online Reporting tool, each rapporteur must first register as a user in the Reporting Portal.

The next step is for the position holder to register as a user in the Reporting Portal. Swedish companies are registered by entering their company identification number, and foreign companies are registered by submitting a form. In both cases, the LEI code is mandatory. The LEI code is provided during the registration process for a foreign firm but, for Swedish companies, it needs to be provided by an authorised signatory after the registration is completed.

The information is then retrieved from the Swedish Companies Registration Office. Once this is done, the authorised signatory is automatically assigned the role “authorised signatory” in the system and can delegate authorisation to the rapporteurs. More information can be found in the instruction manual under “Short Selling” at About the Reporting Portal.

Questions and additional information

Updated information about when the new Short Selling Online Reporting tool will open and when the email and paper-based reporting will close will be available at Short Selling.

Contact the Reporting Division with any questions about the log-in and authorisation process for FI’s Reporting Portal at +46 (0)8 408 980 37 (weekdays 9–11 AM) or by email at [email protected]
