Money, credit and banking

These statistics comprise information from the balance sheets of credit institutions, money market funds, euro area national central banks and the ECB, which together make up the monetary financial institutions (MFI) sector. 

  • Monetary aggregates and counterparts are derived from the euro area MFIs’ consolidated balance sheets and take account of some central government monetary assets/liabilities. Monetary aggregates comprise short-term liabilities vis-à-vis the money holding sector (i.e. non-MFI euro area residents, excluding central government).  
  • Electronic money statistics cover schemes involving the electronic storage of monetary value on technical devices used for making payments.
  • MFI loans to non-financial corporations are broken down by economic activity and estimated based on national sources.

Monetary financial institution (MFI) balance sheet items (BSI) statistics are compiled by the ECB and include monthly and quarterly data. The MFI sector includes central banks, credit institutions, money market funds (MMFs), and e-money institutions and deposit-taking corporations other than credit institutions that are covered under the MFI definition.
