Group of Ten - Consolidation in the Financial Sector

The ongoing consolidation of financial institutions is one of the most notable contemporary features of the financial landscape both within and across many industrial countries. In recognition of this fact, and its potential implications for public policy in a variety of areas, in September 1999 Finance Ministers and central bank Governors of the Group of Ten asked their Deputies to conduct a study of financial consolidation and its potential effects. This Report presents the results of that study.

Guide to the international banking statistics

This Guide to the international banking statistics is intended to serve two main purposes: firstly, to provide reporting countries with definitions and guidelines for the reporting of data; secondly, to give a detailed account of current country practices regarding the coverage and disaggregation of the reported data. The Guide describes two statistical systems, the locational banking statistics and the consolidated banking statistics. It replaces the previous issue (May 1995) and includes numerous changes, updates and clarifications both to the guidelines themselves and to the tables on countries' reporting practices. The main changes to the guidelines have been the inclusion of a reporting requirement for data on an ultimate risk basis and the move to a quarterly reporting frequency in the consolidated banking statistics.
