Official Reserve Assets at the end of January 2013

Date: 07-02-2013

NBP data: At the end of January 2013, Poland's foreign exchange reserves amounted to EUR 79.6 bn, or 108.0 bn in USD terms.

On 7 February, the National Bank of Poland posted its monthly release on the country's official reserve asset holdings. Expressed in euro terms, these assets reached EUR 79.6 bn at the end of January 2013, i.e. EUR 2.9 bn less than the 2012 end-of-year figure. In US dollar terms, they amounted to USD 108.0 bn, as against approx. USD 108.9 bn a month before.

In managing foreign exchange reserves, the National Bank of Poland, while striving to maximize the return on the assets, gives priority to their safe investment and a requisite level of liquidity.

The NBP invests the funds in standard instruments used by central banks. The bulk of the reserves are invested in Treasury securities and certain amounts are held as securities issued by international institutions and government agencies. A fraction of the reserves is maintained in the form of term deposits at banks with a high credit standing and in gold.
