Catena’s financial strategy, mandate and risk taking are regulated by the Group’s financial policy, as adopted by the Board of Catena.
The Group’s treasury management, which is carried out by the Parent Company, Catena AB, ensures that financing and liquidity are secured, that payment systems are appropriate and that the Group’s risk exposure is kept within the framework of the policy.
Catena has a policy that borrowing should mainly have a loan term of at most ten years. All borrowing is to be conducted in SEK. The policy also states that, to the extent this is possible, the fixed-interest term structure is to be adapted to the duration of leases signed. Consideration is also given to the current business plan for each property.
To manage interest-rate risks, Catena uses financial instruments such as interest-rate swaps and interest-rate caps, as mandated by the Board.
