OTC derivatives market activity in the first half of 2013

07 November 2013

The latest BIS statistics on OTC derivatives markets combine the results of the semiannual survey of derivatives dealers in 13 jurisdictions and the Triennial Central Bank Survey of dealers in an additional 34 jurisdictions. They show that notional amounts outstanding totalled $693 trillion at end-June 2013. Of this total, $668 trillion was reported by dealers that participate in the semiannual survey and $25 trillion by dealers that participate only in the Triennial Survey. The latest data on CDS markets include a regional breakdown of foreign counterparties for the first time.

Developments in the latest data are highlighted in the statistical release. Detailed results from the semiannual and Triennial surveys are available on the BIS website. Data at end-December 2013 will be released no later than 15 May 2014.
