The HKMA is committed to ensuring transparency in disclosure in respect of the Exchange Fund. At present, four press releases relating to the Exchange Fund’s data are issued by the HKMA each month. Three of them are issued to disseminate monetary data in accordance with the International Monetary Fund’s Special Data Dissemination Standard (SDDS). The fourth one, on the Exchange Fund’s Abridged Balance Sheet and Currency Board Account, is made in accordance with the HKMA’s policy of maintaining a high level of transparency.
Besides, HKMA reports to the public on the investment performance of the Exchange Fund via press releases twice a year, as well as through regular briefings to the Legislative Council Panel on Financial Affairs. The financial information of the Exchange Fund is also set out in detail in the HKMA Annual Report.
We also publish occasional inSight articles to give updates on the investment environment and our work in reserves management.
