BIS Locational & Consolidated Banking Statistics

More time series from BIS Locational & Consolidated Banking Statistics has been added into Macrobond.

Recently Macrobond has expanded its coverage of time series from BIS Locational & Consolidated Banking Statistics.

The locational banking statistics provide an insight into the aggregate international claims and liabilities of all banks resident in the 41 reporting countries. In this system, both domestic and foreign-owned banking offices in the reporting countries record their positions on a gross basis (except for derivative contracts for which a master netting agreement is in place) and on an unconsolidated basis, including those vis-a-vis own affiliates, which is consistent with the principles of national accounts, money and banking, balance of payments and external debt statistics.

The consolidated banking statistics report banks' on-balance sheet financial claims on the rest of the world and thereby provide a measure of the risk exposures of lenders' national banking systems. Currently, central banks in 30 countries report their aggregate national consolidated data to the BIS, which uses them as the basis for calculating and publishing global data. The reporting countries are: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Chinese Taipei, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong SAR, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Panama, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom and United States.

The BIS banking statistics are available under Economics > by source > BIS (The Bank for International Settlements) or for separate countries under Economics > by country > Banking & Credit in the Macrobond Application.
