Central Bank Liquidity Swaps

The Bank of Canada, the Bank of England, the Bank of Japan, the European Central Bank, the Federal Reserve, and the Swiss National Bank maintain standing U.S. dollar liquidity swap line arrangements to enhance the provision of U.S. dollar liquidity.

These facilities serve as an important liquidity backstop to ease strains in global funding markets, thereby helping to mitigate the effects of such strains on the supply of credit to households and businesses, both domestically and abroad.
