BIS published the IFC Bulletin Number 46, which presents the proceedings of the Irving Fisher Committee (IFC)-National Bank of Belgium Workshop on data needs and compilation of statistics for macro-prudential analysis.
The first part of the workshop discussed the implications for statistics of the new macro-prudential frameworks. The second part focused on areas where substantial data gaps still constrain macro-prudential analyses: namely, the measurement of prices in the real estate sector, the assessment of household vulnerabilities, shadow banking and, more generally, the new patterns of financial intermediation that have emerged post-crisis. The third part was devoted to derivatives markets, with a focus on making use of the new data collected by trade repositories. The last part dealt with the increasing use of granular, loan-by-loan data sets for macro-prudential analysis. The workshop closed with a policy panel discussion, chaired by Marcia De Wachter (NBB), which presented a useful opportunity to review the policy usefulness of the data collected since the great financial crisis.
As per Claudia Buch, the IFC Chair and Vice President of Deutsche Bundesbank: “Surveillance of risks to financial stability requires good data and information. The second phase of the G20 Data Gaps Initiative plays an important role for improvements in the statistical infrastructure. Apart from providing a conceptual framework for the collection of data, implementation of new concepts nationally and internationally will be crucial.”
