Exchange Equalisation Account

The Exchange Equalisation Account (EEA) was established in 1932 to provide a fund which could be used for “checking undue fluctuations in the exchange value of sterling”. Under the consolidating Exchange Equalisation Account Act 1979, it may also be used to secure the conservation or disposition in the national interest of making payments abroad and for certain purposes arising out of the UK’s membership of the IMF including the holding, purchase and sale of Special Drawing Rights (SDRs). It holds the UK’s reserves of gold, foreign currencies and SDRs.
