For the sixth straight month, South Korea's foreign exchange reserves have hit an all-time high.
The Bank of Korea said on Thursday that reserves amounted to some four-hundred-36 billion U.S. dollars in November,an on-month increase of around 9.9 billion dollars.
The central bank attributed the rise to investment profits as well as the increased value of non-dollar assets due to the weak greenback.
As of the end of October, South Korea's FX reserves were the ninth largest in the world.
China topped the list.
