International reserves Magyar Nemzeti Bank
* Total reserve assets USD million Jan/18 29 155 28 002 Notes: At market price including accrued interest. Preliminary data. The following factors played the most important role in the decrease of international reserve assets in March 2016. The effect of foreign currency operations of the ĮKK (Government Debt Management Agency) and the MĮK (Hungarian State Treasury) was about -1.2 billion euros, the major part of which was related to the redemption of the GBP denominated Government Bond. The remaining change was explained mostly by the decrease of the margin account of the ĮKK held at the MNB related to cross-currency exchange rate changes. Redemptions of central bank swap contracts related to the phasing out of households’ FX loans decreased the level of reserve assets by 2.9 billion euros. Furthermore, other factors contributed to the decline of reserve assets to a minor extent (e.g. revaluation effects related to exchange rate changes).
