The overall objective of the government debt policy is to:

  • cover the central-government financing requirement at the lowest possible long-term borrowing costs, while taking the degree of risk into account.
  • facilitate the central government's access to the financial markets in the longer term
  • support a well-functioning domestic financial market.

The objectives of Denmark's government debt policy are in accordance with international standards.

The management of the Government Debt in Denmark is focused on maintaining a low refinancing risk by meeting the financing requirement well in advance, ensuring a large investor base and holding substantial liquidity reserves.​
