1993 SNA Update Information - AEG recommendations for issue:
Holding companies, special purpose entities, trusts
|Issue description in [English] | [French] | [Russian] | [Spanish]|
|As part of the innovation in financial markets and asset management over the last decade, several forms
of separate entities have come into existence that only hold assets or liabilities but do not engage in
production. Such entities are separate new or existing legal structures assigned for specific purposes
such as specialized portfolio management of assets and debts, restructuring agencies, special purpose
entities, shell companies, limited liability partnerships or trusts. Should these entities be treated as
ancillary and merged with their related enterprises, or should they be treated as separate units? If they
are separate units, to which sector should they be allocated?|
|Number of AEG recommendations for selected issue:||1|
| Corresponding meeting||Date posted||Recommendation|
| December 2004||1/11/2005||An SPE incorporated in an economic territory other than any of its owners should be treated as a separate institutional unit and resident in its country of incorporation.|
The AEG requested some indicative guidelines on the identification of SPEs across manuals, although an internationally standard definition of SPE is not available in light of the national diversity.
This issue should be coordinated with TFHPSA.
