FSB published a report that presents results from the fourth shadow banking monitoring exercise in Americas. This exercise was designed and conducted by the Working Group on Shadow Banking that was set up by FSB’s Regional Consultative Group for the Americas (RCGA).

The report describes key differences between earlier reports by the FSB Regional Consultative Group and the Global Shadow Banking Monitoring Report for 2016, including the templates for both the Monitoring Universe of Non-bank Financial Intermediation (MUNFI) and the new narrow measure. The report examines observations from responses to the Working Group on Shadow Banking questionnaire on finance companies and recommends that the future RCGA monitoring exercises should incorporate risk metrics data consistent with data reported to FSB to examine the extent of shadow banking risks in the Americas. The key objective of the exercise is to achieve a better understanding of the scope and structure of non-bank credit intermediation in the Americas and to monitor its development over time. The report uses data up to the end of 2016, based on balance sheet data from national financial account statistics and other (regulatory or private sector) sources. The 17 member jurisdictions that took part in the exercise account for approximately 98% of GDP in the region.
