SDRs are an international reserve asset created and maintained by the International Monetary Fund (IMF). They were established in 1969 to supplement member countries’ official reserves and facilitate international monetary transactions. The primary purpose of SDRs is to provide liquidity to the global monetary system and promote stability in the exchange rate system.
