About payments and financial market infrastructures statistics

The BIS publishes statistics on payments and financial market infrastructures (FMIs) in member jurisdictions of the Committee on Payments and Market Infrastructures (CPMI). Widely known as the Red Book statistics, they complement the descriptions of payment and settlement systems in CPMI jurisdictions

In August 2017, the CPMI published a revised methodology of the Red Book statistics. The 2018 statistics (based on figures through end-2017) were the first to use the new methodology. Furthermore, from 2018 onwards, geographical coverage was expanded to include three new CPMI member jurisdictions (Argentina, Indonesia and Spain).

The Red Book statistics for CPMI countries can be accessed via the BIS Statistics Explorer (which allows users to download individual tables), or in (zipped) CSV and SDMX files.
