IMF Executive Board reviews the Adequacy of Precautionary Balances

9 April 2012
 
The Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) reviewed the adequacy of the Fund’s precautionary balances applying the more transparent and rules-based framework that was developed in 2010.
 
Precautionary balances (comprising the Special Contingent Account (SCA-1) and retained earnings from normal operations held in the Fund’s reserves) are one element of the IMF’s multi-layered framework for managing financial risks and are available to absorb possible financial losses or to help protecting the value of members’ positions in the IMF financing mechanism.
