Culture minister Leif Pagrotsky is the richest with a fund portfolio totalling around 6.7 million kronor. That is more than all the other 21 ministers together. During his time as minister he has sold off his privately held shares to avoid conflicts of interest.
Five ministers - minister for sustainable development Mona Sahlin, justice minister Thomas Bodström, employment minister Hans Carlsson, equality minister Jens Orback and local government minister Sven-Erik Österberg - declared that they held no shares or funds.
Several ministers had not updated their details recently despite a requirement to declare their holdings.
