Price Stability - Inflation Targeting

​​​Reserve Requirements​

Reserve requirements refer to the percentage of bank deposits and deposit substitute liabilities that banks must set aside in deposits with the BSP which they cannot lend out, or where available through reserve-eligible government securities. Changes in reserve requirements have a significant effect on money supply in the banking system, making them a powerful means of liquidity management by the BSP.

Reserve requirements are imposed on the peso liabilities of universal/commercial banks (UBs/KBs), thrift banks (TBs), rural banks (RBs) and cooperative banks (Coop Banks), and non-bank financial institutions with quasi-banking functions (NBQBs). Reservable liabilities include demand, savings, time deposit and deposit substitutes (including long-term non-negotiable tax-exempt certificates of time deposit or LTNCTDs)

The existing reserve requirement ratios vary across bank types and liabilities.
