Large amount of Danish government securities
In 2020, the total nominal outstanding amount of Danish government securities increased by kr. 227 billion, to a total of kr. 807 billion in November 2020. Of this, kr. 710 billion is issued in the Danish kroner, and kr. 97 billion is issued in foreign currency. The increased amount of outstanding government securities in 2020 partly reflects the government's increased borrowing needs, as a result of the corona crisis, and the build-up of a liquidity reserve.
