Central Bank to reduce one-month term deposit supply

Central Bank of Iceland

The Central Bank has decided to reduce significantly its offerings of one-month term deposits. The next auction will be held on 1 April 2020. This decision has been made because of the radical changes that have occurred in domestic market conditions in a short period of time. It is foreseen that Treasury expenditure will increase in coming weeks and months, as will Treasury bond issuance. The Bank will continue to offer seven-day term deposits on a weekly basis. The Bank will also continue to ensure that term deposits can be used as payment system collateral.
