About debt securities statistics

These statistics cover borrowing activity in debt capital markets. They capture debt instruments designed to be traded in financial markets, such as treasury bills, commercial paper, negotiable certificates of deposit, bonds, debentures and asset-backed securities, and distinguish between debt securities issued in international and domestic markets. BIS debt securities are harmonised with the recommendations of the Handbook on securities statistics, an internationally agreed framework for classifying debt securities issues.

As of January 2024, debt securities statistics will only be disseminated through the BIS Data Portal.
The BIS Statistics Explorer and the current page will no longer be available.
