The Coordinated Direct Investment Survey (CDIS) is a worldwide statistical data collection effort led by the IMF. The aim is to improve the quality of direct investment position statistics, by collecting and making available data for international investment position as well as for immediate counterpart economies. This provides a greater understanding of cross-border, financial interconnectedness. The data covers a breakdown of direct investment positions, typically including net equity and net debt positions. The CDIS is conducted annually, with data starting from 2009.
CDIS data is now (as of July) available in Macrobond, for all users. Access it here IMF > CDIS .
