Dutch households are putting more and more money in bank accounts abroad, according to the latest quarterly figures from DNB and the ECB. Countries where savings rates have recently risen are particularly popular among Dutch savers.
At DNB we provide statistical data on the Dutch financial sector and the Dutch balance of payments. With these data, statistics and our expertise, we enable policy makers, researchers and other interested parties to monitor developments and achieve societal goals better.
For example, we provide the latest financial and economic statistics on household savings, mortgage interest rates and foreign direct investment. We also publish data based on supervisory information, such as the average funding ratio of pension funds.
In our statistical news releases you can read about current developments. And our thematic dashboards give graphical presentations of various data. You can also use the “Data search” option to access the data yourself. Here you can look up and download data and even embed them in other websites.
Dutch institutional investors such as pension funds, investment funds and insurers kept their investments in risky bonds roughly the same over the past 12 months. This is a break from previous years: since 2019, large investors had expanded their exposure to what are termed high-yield bonds.
Dutch households suffered losses on their portfolio investments in the third quarter of 2023. Overall, the value of portfolio investments fell some €3.6 billion (-2.1%) from a quarter earlier, to €162.4 billion.
