Bundesbank sees profits fall by €5bn

Germany's central bank has said that profits fell by €5bn last year compared to 2002. The drop was partly due to the lower valuation of its equities portfolio and a fall in the value of its dollar-denominated securities holdings.

The bank said it had to take a €2.3bn write-down for the 2003 business year due to the lower valuation of its equities portfolio, of which €1.7m was attributed to lower valuation of dollar-denominated securities holdings.
