Poland’s Foreign Exchange Reserves above EUR 75.7 Billion

Date: 05-01-2012

NBP data: In December 2011, Poland’s foreign exchange reserves, after conversion into euro, increased to an all-time high.

Data on the official reserve assets released on 5 January show that in December 2011 Poland’s foreign exchange reserves, after conversion into euro, increased by around EUR 1.5 bn to over EUR 75.7 bn, a historical high. At the same time, however, the reserves – in dollar terms – slightly decreased from USD 98.7 bn at the end of November to USD 97.9 bn at the end of December 2011 on the back of exchange rate fluctuations.

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

The NBP invests its reserves in typical instruments used by central banks. They are predominantly invested in government securities and some amounts in securities issued by international institutions and government agencies. A small portion of the reserves is held as deposits at banks with high ratings, and in gold.
