存款准备金率 (required reserve ratio)

The reserve requirement (or required reserve ratio) is a bank regulation that sets the minimum reserves each bank must hold to customer deposits and notes. These reserves are designed to satisfy withdrawal demands, and would normally be in the form of fiat currency stored in a bank vault (vault cash), or with a central bank.

The reserve ratio is sometimes used as a tool in monetary policy, influencing the country’s economy, borrowing, and interest rates However, Central banks rarely alter the reserve requirements due to the fact that it would cause immediate liquidity problems for banks with low excess reserves. Instead, open market operations are used. As of 2006 the required reserve ratio in the United States was 10% on transaction deposits (component of money supply "M1"), and zero on time deposits and all other deposits.

An institution that holds reserves in excess of the required amount is said to hold excess reserves.

存款准备金是指金融机构为保证客户提取存款和资金清算需要而准备的在中央银行的存款,中央银行要求的存款准备金占其存款总额的比例就是存款准备金率
    存款准备金,是限制金融机构信贷扩张和保证客户提取存款和资金清算需要而准备的资金。法定存款准备金率,是金融机构按规定向中央银行缴纳的存款准备金占其存款的总额的比率。存款准备金率变动对商业银行的作用过程如下:
  当中央银行提高法定准备金率时,商业银行可提供放款及创造信用的能力就下降。因为准备金率提高,货币乘数就变小,从而降低了整个商业银行体系创造信用、扩大信用规模的能力,其结果是社会的银根偏紧,货币供应量减少,利息率提高,投资及社会支出都相应缩减。反之,亦然。
打比方说,如果存款准备金率为7%,就意味着金融机构每吸收100万元存款,要向央行缴存7万元的存款准备金,用于发放贷款的资金为93万元。倘若将存款准备金率提高到7.5%,那么金融机构的可贷资金将减少到92.5万元。
在存款准备金制度下,金融机构不能将其吸收的存款全部用于发放贷款,必须保留一定的资金即存款准备金,以备客户提款的需要,因此存款准备金制度有利于保证金融机构对客户的正常支付。随着金融制度的发展,存款准备金逐步演变为重要的货币政策工具。当中央银行降低存款准备金率时,金融机构可用于贷款的资金增加,社会的贷款总量和货币供应量也相应增加;反之,社会的贷款总量和货币供应量将相应减少。
中央银行通过调整存款准备金率,可以影响金融机构的信贷扩张能力,从而间接调控货币供应量。超额存款准备金率是指商业银行超过法定存款准备金而保留的准备金占全部活期存款的比率。从形态上看,超额准备金可以是现金,也可以是具有高流动性的金融资产,如在中央银行账户上的准备存款等。
2006年以来,中国经济快速增长,但经济运行中的突出矛盾也进一步凸显,投资增长过快的势头不减。而投资增长过快的主要原因之一就是货币信贷增长过快。提高存款准备金率可以相应地减缓货币信贷增长,保持国民经济健康、协调发展。
存款准备金率与利率的关系
一般地,存款准备金率上升,利率会有上升压力,这是实行紧缩的货币政策的信号。存款准备金率是针对银行等金融机构的,对最终客户的影响是间接的;利率是针对最终客户的,比如你存款的利息,影响是直接的。
