  Legal acts and other agreements The framework for the collection of Securities Holdings Statistics is laid down in Regulation ECB/2012/24, amended by ECB/2015/18, ECB/2016/22 and ECB/2018/7. The Regulation is complemented by Guideline ECB/2013/07, amended by ECB/2015/19, ECB/2016/23 and ECB/2018/8, which sets out the procedures to be followed by NCBs when reporting the data to the ECB. See
  Reference area coverage Euro area
  Time coverage These statistics are available as from reference period 2013-Q4
  Source data type Holdings data are collected on a security-by-security level (based on Regulation ECB/2012/24), and subsequently merged with the Centralised Securities Database to complete the data set with additional attributes referring to individual securities and their issuers. 
  Data collection method For certain sectors, data are collected directly from investors (mainly Monetary Financial Institutions, Investment Funds, Financial Vehicle Corporations, Insurance Corporations as from 2016-Q1). For other sectors, data are collected via custodians. Some national particularities may apply.
  Time period These statistics are available as from reference period 2013-Q4
  Comparability - over time As from 2016-Q1, some countries have introduced direct reporting by insurance corporations in place of custodian reporting so far. The most prominent break in the time series due to this change refers to euro area insurance corporations’ holdings of investment fund shares/units issued in Great Britain.
  Timeliness The data are released around 3 ½ months after the end of the reference quarter
