1. Public debt - sovereign issuance.

An agency with responsibilities for managing the debt of a sovereign issuer, usually a country.

2. UK.

An executive agency of HM Treasury.

The DMO is responsible for carrying out the UK government's debt management policy of:

  • Minimising financing costs over the long term, taking account of risk.
  • Minimising the cost of offsetting the UK government's net cash flows over time.
  • Operating within a risk appetite approved by UK government ministers.

In all cases this is to be conducted consistently with the objectives of monetary and wider policy considerations.
