LEGAL AND INSTITUTIONAL ENVIRONMENT
  Legal acts and other agreements

The legal framework for investment funds is set out in Regulation (EC) No 1073/2013 of the European Central Bank of 18 October 2013 concerning statistics on the assets and liabilities of investment funds (ECB/2013/38).

 
SCOPE
  Data presentation - Summary description

These statistics refer to the assets and liabilities of euro area investment funds, covering both outstanding amounts and transactions.

  Data presentation - Detailed description

This dataset presents harmonised statistics on the assets and liabilities of investment funds (IFs) which belong to the sub-sector “Financial corporations except monetary financial institutions (MFIs) and insurance corporations and pension funds (ICPFs)” in the European System of Accounts (ESA 2010). IFs are distinguished by investment policy (equity funds, bond funds, mixed funds, real estate funds, hedge funds, other funds) and by type of fund (open-end or closed-end). In addition, data on exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are available. Money market funds and pension funds are not covered in these data (dedicated statistics are available).

  Reference area coverage

Euro area, complemented by data for several non-euro area EU Member States.

  Sector coverage

Investment funds belonging to the sub-sector “Financial corporations except monetary financial institutions (MFIs) and insurance corporations and pension funds (ICPFs)" in the ESA 2010.

  Time coverage

First reported data within this framework refer to December 2008. A set of quarterly euro area aggregates has been estimated back to Q4 2000.

 
METHODOLOGICAL INFORMATION
  Source data type

All investment funds in the euro area are legally obliged to report data from their business and accounting systems to the National Central Banks (NCBs) of the Member States where they reside. These in turn report national aggregates to the ECB. The census of investment funds (list of IFs) is published by the ECB. (See http://www.ecb.int/ecb/legal/1005/1021/html/index.en.html)

  Data collection method

The framework for the collection of investment fund statistics is laid down in Regulation ECB/2013/38. The Regulation is complemented by Guideline ECB/2014/15, which sets out the procedures to be followed by NCBs when reporting the data to the ECB. (See http://www.ecb.europa.eu/ecb/legal/1005/1021/html/index.en.html)


Data collection is based on a census rather than a sample. Nonetheless, NCBs are entitled to exempt investment funds from certain statistical reporting requirements in accordance with Article 8 of Regulation ECB/2013/38.

  Time period

Monthly, except for certain detailed breakdowns which are collected quarterly.

  Frequency of data collection

Monthly and quarterly.

 
STATISTICAL PROCESSING
  Data compilation

Data are aggregated across individual IFs in each Member State by NCBs or national statistical institutes to derive contributions to the euro area aggregated balance sheet of the investment fund sector.

  Adjustment

Neither seasonally nor working day adjusted

  Data validation

Based on the verification of balance sheet constraints, plus checks on plausibility of developments at various levels of aggregation based on time series techniques and judgement.
