Fixed Term Deposits

The Authority also recognizes its role in the country’s financial market. The country faces a savings crisis and cannot mobilize enough liquidity through savings. Traditional solutions would require Bank of Zambia (BoZ) to become the “Lender of Last Resort” and provide liquidity to the Commercial Banks. Bank of Zambia (BoZ) has its own reserve challenges and therefore the role of NAPSA helps alleviate the problem by providing liquidity to financial institution through investments in Fixed Term Deposits and other Instruments. 

The Authority has made this investment in the following companies:
