In-depth analysis and insights

Chapter 2 of the BIS's Annual Report 2023/24

Economic research and analysis

Our research and analysis are the result of the joint effort between various areas of the BIS. We provide unique perspectives and conceptual and empirical advances, on the one hand, and analysis that can contribute to policymaking, on the other. 

Statistical work and data analytics

The BIS international banking and financial statistics are compiled in cooperation with central banks, other national authorities and international organisations. They inform and support analysis of financial stability, international monetary spillovers and global liquidity. BIS research also makes use of the BIS Data Bank of key economic indicators shared among member central banks. The BIS's statistical offering has steadily expanded, facilitating deeper analysis of the global financial system.

Collaboration with central bank and academic researchers around the world 

The BIS fosters collaboration with shareholder central banks and the academic community to engage in debate about topics of policy relevance while sharing cutting-edge analytical tools and enhancing dissemination of BIS data.
