Monthly balance sheet statistics
The monthly balance sheet statistics provide a comprehensive overview of the business of German banks (MFIs). Banks, with the status of a deposit-taking credit institution within the meaning of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 on prudential requirements for credit institutions and investment firms, provide a monthly report of their balance sheet, which in further attachments is broken down in greater detail according to sectors and original maturities.
The monthly balance sheet statistics are a centrally important source of data for the consolidated balance sheet of the monetary financial institutions sector in Germany and thus for Germany's contribution to euro-area monetary aggregates.
To enable a more in-depth analysis of certain balance sheet items, information is obtained using the following surveys.
