Date: 06-06-2012

NBP data: At the end of May 2012, Poland’s foreign exchange reserves expressed in euro reached EUR 79.2 billion. This figure exceeds the April level by EUR 1.5 billion and the March level by EUR 4.4 billion.

On 6 June 2012, the National Bank of Poland released data on official foreign reserve holdings as at the end of May. When translated into EUR they posted an increase for the second consecutive month and hit their record high of EUR 79.2 billion. As a result of exchange rates fluctuations, when translated into US dollars, they fell from USD 102.8 in April to USD 98.2 in May.

The National Bank of Poland manages foreign exchange reserves so as to maximize the yield, yet their safe investment and maintenance of a required liquidity level are the priorities.

The NBP invests reserve assets in standard instruments used by central banks. Majority of investments are government securities, some monies are invested in securities issued by international institutions and government agencies. A small part of reserves are held as deposits in highly rated banks abroad or in gold.
