Statement from the NBS Bank Board’s 19th meeting of 2020

The Bank Board of Národná banka Slovenska today (8 September) held its 19th meeting of 2020, chaired by NBS Governor Peter Kažimír.

The Bank Board approved the notification of the issuance of a €100 gold collector coin commemorating Svätopluk II, Prince of Nitra.

The coin is made from an alloy of gold (90%), silver (7.5%) and copper (2.5%), weighs 9.5 g, and has a diameter of 26 mm. Designed by Roman Lugár and produced by the Kremnica Mint, the coin is due to go on sale in November 2020.

The Bank Board decided to repeal Decision No 21/2016 of Národná banka Slovenska of 27 September 2016 on recognising the systemic risk buffer rate of 1% for all exposures located in Estonia. The repealing decision will take effect on the date of its publication in the Journal of Národná banka Slovenska.

BR NBS approved a document entitled “Propositions for an information campaign on corporate bonds”. Noting the uptrend in corporate bond marketing and investment and considering the risk inherent in corporate bonds, the Bank Board wishes to raise awareness about these financial instruments by means of an information campaign. The approved document lays down the key propositions for this campaign, including its form.

The Bank Board approved a document entitled “Support for external financial education projects – grant scheme”, which is in line with the “Financial Literacy Support Strategy of Národná banka Slovenska”.
