Operational measures linked to COVID-19

The Banque centrale du Luxembourg wants to recall that it has taken the necessary measures to ensure business continuity in the areas of monetary policy operations, collateral management, payment systems, liquidity supervision, and the distribution of banknotes and coins.

The steps taken by the BCL also aim at safeguarding the well-being of its staff. The Bank has postponed the hosting of events, limited physical access to its premises, strengthened internal sanitary measures and asked critical operational staff to access the Bank’s systems remotely. The Executive Board and several staff teams have been split, notably through the use of remote access.

For any further question, please refer to your usual contacts at the BCL.

For your information, operational measures taken by the ECB can be found here.

Further information for counterparties can be found here.

The continued increases in property prices and mortgage lending in Luxembourg have led to a rising level of household indebtedness. As a result, the ratio of household debt to disposable income more than doubled since 2000 and increased by 10 percentage points over the last five years. (...)
