IMF Financial Soundness Indicators (FSIs) added

IMF FSIs added and IMF content grouped in the select series tree.

The Financial Soundness Indicators (FSIs) were developed by the IMF, together with the international community, with the aim of supporting macroprudential analysis and assessing strengths and vulnerabilities of financial systems.

The data added consist of the following banking ratios for 100 countries:

Regulatory Capital to Risk-Weighted Assets
Capital to Assets
Nonperforming Loans to Total Loans
Provisions to Nonperforming Loans
Return on Assets

Note that both methodology and the date the latest data point refers to may vary from country to country.

More information is available here: http://fsi.imf.org/

Due to this addition we have also grouped the IMF tree so that the new module and the previously available DOTS and IMF modules are all located under a single IMF node in the time series tree. This was done to make the list of databases shorter and more comprehensible.
