Statistics on international financial and capital transactions (SIFCT)

The research dataset “Statistics on international financial and capital transactions (SIFCT)” provides the microdata collected by the Deutsche Bundesbank for the compilation of the financial account, capital account and investment income of the German balance of payments statistics. The research dataset provides detailed information on capital transfers receivable and payable between residents and nonresidents, the acquisition and disposal of nonproduced, nonfinancial assets as well as transactions involving financial assets and liabilities and investment income. Transactions in produced assets such as machinery and equipment are not covered. The country of the counterparty and the sector classification of the resident firm supplement the dataset. The research data are available from 2001 as a panel dataset with a monthly frequency.
