Company Banque centrale du Luxembourg   Read our profile
Description: La Banque centrale du Luxembourg (BCL) a été instituée par les lois du 22 avril 1998 et du 23 décembre 1998 telle que modifiée par une loi du 13 juillet 2007, la loi du 24 octobre 2008 et la loi du 10 novembre 2009. La BCL a été créée en même temps que la Banque centrale européenne (BCE). Sa fondation représente l'aboutissement de longs efforts dans le cadre de la création de l'Union monétaire européenne (voir aussi Eurosystème).
L'Etat est l'unique détenteur du capital de la BCL qui est fixé à 175 millions d'euros (25 millions d'euros au 31 décembre 1998). La Banque a réalisé une augmentation de capital en date du 1er juin 2009 pour un montant de 150 millions d'euros par incorporation de réserves. L'indépendance de la BCL est cependant garantie par la loi et par le Traité.
La contribution de la BCL est importante pour la zone euro et pour le pays. Le Traité de Maastricht et l'avènement de l'euro ont rendu nécessaire la création d'une banque centrale.
