Dutch State increases call on money market and reopens the DSL 2031

On 21 November 2022 the Fall Budget Memorandum of the Dutch State was published. Increased expenditures, mainly related to energy support for households and SMEs, led to an increase in the funding need for 2022. As a result, the DSTA has decided to increase its call on the money market to finance the fluctuations in the funding need. In addition, the DSTA has decided to reopen the DSL 15 July 2031. This also promotes the liquidity in this particular DSL by alleviating scarcity concerns.
