Internationale reserveaktiver og likviditet.png

The statistics contain a detailed statement of the composition of Danmarks Nationalbank's reserve assets, including the holdings of securities, financial derivatives such as currency and interest rate swaps, gold, loans and deposits in foreign currency.

The statistics are compiled in accordance with the International Monetary Fund's guidelines for the compilation of international reserve assets (link). The statistics differ in several respects from the specification that appears in Danmarks Nationalbank's accounting balance (link) and the associated monthly press release on Foreign Exchange and Liquidity and Monthly Balance Sheet (link). It is both more extensive and is compiled according to other principles. In addition to Danmarks Nationalbank's reserve assets, the extended compilation includes information on future inflows and outflows on assets and liabilities in foreign currency, including disbursements on the government's liabilities in foreign currency, as well as supplementary information on, for example, assets in foreign currency received or pledged by Danmarks Nationalbank.

The statistics on international reserve assets are divided into holdings of different types of securities, gold, loans and deposits in foreign currency etc., while the statistics on payments and liquidity are divided into sector, loans and deposits in foreign currency, securities and type of payments etc.

The statistics are published every month, typically on the last banking day.
