Stora Enso’s funding strategy is based on the Group’s financial targets. Stora Enso should have access to sufficient competitively priced funding at any time to be able to pursue its strategy and achieve its financial targets.
To ensure access to sufficient competitively priced funding, the emphasis is on capital markets funding. Stora Enso strives to build confidence and a track record with fixed-income investors by being informative and transparent.
Stora Enso’s debt structure is focused on the capital markets, whereas banks are primarily used to provide back-up facilities. To balance exposure, funding is obtained in the currencies of the Group’s investments and assets (primarily USD, EUR and SEK).
Commercial paper markets are used for short-term funding and liquidity management.
