Consolidated financial statement of the Eurosystem as at 2 February 2024

6 February 2024

In the week ending 2 February 2024 the net position of the Eurosystem in foreign currency (asset items 2 and 3 minus liability items 7, 8 and 9) remained virtually unchanged at EUR 318.1 billion.

As a result of the Eurosystem’s open market operations and standing facilities, net lending to credit institutions (asset item 5 minus liability items 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, 2.5 and 4) decreased by EUR 3.3 billion to ‑EUR 3,105.8 billion. This was due primarily to the change in the level of the deposit facility (liability item 2.2).

Base money (liability items 1, 2.1 and 2.2) fell by EUR 2 billion to EUR 5,222.1 billion.

The change in the revaluation accounts (liability item 11) was due to the finalisation of activities for the end of the financial year 2023.

The table below provides the detailed breakdown of securities held for monetary policy purposes (asset item 7.1) into the different portfolios. All portfolios are accounted for at amortised cost.
