MOSCOW, April 4 Russia's Reserve Fund increased slightly to $16.19 billion on April 1 from $16.07 billion at the start of the previous month, finance ministry data showed on Tuesday.
The fund, which was accumulated over years of high oil prices, dropped sharply in late 2016 because of year-end budget spending but has stabilised in the last few months.
Its size changes due to market fluctuations as its holdings are denominated in different currencies including dollars, euros and pounds sterling.
The fund may grow later this year as the finance ministry has started buying foreign currency for the country's fiscal buffers.
The finance ministry also said on Tuesday that the National Wealth Fund, a fund designed to help balance the pension system, stood at $73.33 billion as of April 1 versus $72.60 billion as of March 1. (Reporting by Alexander Winning; editing by Katya Golubkova)
