1993 SNA Update Information - Financial corporations classification
|Proposal for sub-sectoring the financial cororations sector.|
|Number of AEG recommendations for selected clarification:||1|
| Date posted||Recommendation|
|4/7/2006||The AEG agreed to the following changes to the proposals presented in the paper:|
Money-market funds should be shifted from “Monetary financial [institutions]” into the “Investment funds” category and shown explicitly.
Using the same term to describe an instrument and the controlling institution (e.g. “Pension funds”) is confusing. The AEG considered that a term like “Pension fund corporations” is clumsy and suggestions for alternative descriptions should be sent to the Editor.
The specific codes used should be changed in the updated SNA to avoid confusion between the current System and the updated one (e.g. the 1993 SNA code of S.121 refers to the “Central Bank” while, in this paper S.121 is proposed for a higher level item “Monetary financial institutions”). The AEG agreed that the updated system should use a new set of codes, at the discretion of the ISWGNA.
The AEG agreed that the Editor should look at possible alternatives to make a distinction between the terminology of “Miscellaneous financial institutions” and “Financial auxiliaries”.
The definition of “Investment funds” will be considered as part of the consultations mentioned
