Bosnia’s M1 growth accelerates to 3.1% y/y in June 2013.

By bne IntelliNews August 9, 2013

Bosnia’s money supply aggregate M1 rose 3.1% y/y to BAM 6.3bn (EUR 3.2bn) at end-June, quickening from a 2.6% increase the month before, central bank figures showed. The reading accounted for 22.6% of the forecast full-year GDP, down from 23.0% a year earlier.

M1 growth in June was underpinned by both rising currency in circulation and KM demand deposits.

The broader M2 aggregate grew 5.1% y/y to BAM 15.2bn in June, inching down from a 5.3% growth a month earlier, due to slower increase of other deposits in both foreign and domestic currency.

Quasi money (QM) rose 6.5% y/y to BAM 9bn in June, contributing 3.8 points to the 5.1% y/y M2 growth.

The M2-to-GDP ratio was broadly unchanged in annual terms at 54.9% at end-June.
