The UK’s official international reserves are made up of:
- foreign currencies
- IMF special drawing rights (SDRs)
- the UK’s reserves tranche position at the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
We use the IMF’s international reserves template to publish this data.
Summary data are also published by HM Treasury in a monthly press release on the third working day of every month.
We have published further background information on UK international reserves statistics and the IMF template.
For further information on how we compile the UK version of the IMF template, email ReservesSDDS@bankofengland.co.uk.
More instrument and currency detail is available in Bankstats tables, which are published monthly.
