27-08-2019

Updated estimates of the central government net financing and financing requirement are presented in table 1 below.

The financing requirement for 2019 has increased by 36 bn. kr. to 180 bn. kr. due to larger repayments of long-term debt and greater net purchase of social housing mortgage bonds. The Ministry of Finance expects a financing requirement of 65 bn. kr. for 2020.

Danmarks Nationalbank manages the financing strategy for the Danish government, and publishes the strategy on the website of the government debt management office.

The target for government bond sales in 2019 is 75 bn. kr. The target for short-term treasury bills is 30 bn. kr.

The government account at Danmarks Nationalbank covers any additional financing requirement.
