Exchange-Rate Risk

Exchange-rate risk is the risk that the value of the debt in kroner increases as a consequence of a change in exchange rates. The central government holds foreign debt in order to maintain the foreign-exchange reserve.

The foreign government debt is exposed solely in euro, which entails a low exchange-rate risk due to Denmark's fixed exchange-rate policy vis-à-vis the euro.
