|43.d. Fees payable on securities lending and gold loans|
|Issue description and recommendation|
Neither the 1993 SNA nor the Balance of Payments Manual discusses the issue of fees payable on securities lending and gold loans. The fee for securities lending is for putting a financial instrument at the disposal of another unit, but it does not fit with the definition of interest when the legal ownership is transferred but the economic risks and rewards of the ownership remain with the original owner. The fee payable on gold loans appears to be a payment for services as gold in this instance is non-monetary gold.
