Abstract

This paper uses QUEST III, a multi-region global DSGE model, to study the effects of a gradual equalization of the portfolio composition of official foreign reserves between dollars and euros. We simulate a scenario of a shift in the composition of foreign reserves holdings from the present ratio of 65 percent dollars and 25 percent euros to equal 45 percent shares over a 10 years period. We assume imperfect substitutability between financial assets to allow this shift to have real effects. Our simulations point towards small real effects due to the reduction in real interest rates that results from this shift in official holdings.
