Reserve Management Service

The euro is the second most important reserve currency worldwide behind the US dollar. In order to give central banks outside the Eurosystem as well as international organisations and monetary authorities access to the various euro financial markets, the range of central bank services provided by the Bundesbank includes offering its customers the possibility of opening a bank account and setting up a safe custody account. On this basis, our customers have the option to make use of additional financial services. This means that they can manage their euro reserves at the Bundesbank in a way that is tailored to their individual requirements.

Fixed-term deposits

We offer our customers two types of fixed-term deposits.

For customers seeking safe and risk-free fixed-term deposits, we provide fixed-term deposits directly with the Bundesbank. We also offer investment of fixed-term deposits as an agent. In that case we invest time deposits with counterparties in the market (exclusively German credit institutions with a high credit rating).

Conditions for fixed-term deposits depend on the prevailing market conditions. To enquire about these, call us on +49 (0)69 9566 1600 or  contact us via Reuters Eikon Chat or Bloomberg IB.
