Template on International Reserves

The data template on international reserves and foreign currency liquidity provides a detailed overview of the Irish international reserves and other foreign currency assets and potential and predetermined short-term foreign currency inflows and net drains. The data are disseminated monthly, and in accordance to an internationally standardised template established by the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Reserve assets comprise highly liquid, marketable and creditworthy claims held by the Central Bank of Ireland on non-euro residents that are denominated in foreign currencies (not in euro). Other foreign currency assets include foreign currency-denominated claims on euro area residents. Reserve-related liabilities are predetermined and contingent short-term net drains on the Eurosystem. Reserve assets are compiled on a gross basis without netting of reserve-related liabilities.

NB: The time series data made available concerns only a subset of the items included in the Data Template on International Reserves and Foreign Currency Liquidity. Work is ongoing to expand this subset to include all items in the template.
