Comparison of the classification of assets between II ad FA
What does exist in II which does not exist in FA Non-financial assets A plan is underway to collect this information It is proposed to retain these categories in the additional table FA/II Breakdown between residents and non-residents the new 2004 FA questionnaire includes a “ whom to whom ” cross classification for all assets and liabilities of all institutional sectors It is proposed to maintain this breakdown at least for bonds and shares
Comparison of the classification of sectors between II ad FA
II’s Insurance companies & pension funds versus FA’s S125 In II there is a breakdown of the S125 between life insurance non life insurance autonomous pension funds Proposal The following breakdown of four categories in the FA/II additional table could be added: non-life insurance pure non-life reinsurers life insurance autonomous pension funds
II’s Investment companies versus parts of FA’s S122 & S123 The II sector “ investment companies ” seems to correspond to ‘ mutual funds ’ No definition in SNA Fortunately, precise definitions in ESA Definition Mutual funds are considered as financial intermediaries … may be classified in sub-sector S122 … otherwise … in sub-sector S123
Liabilities of II’s Investment companies versus F52 liabilities of FA’s S122 & S123 Comparisons between the total of liabilities of investment companies in II and the liabilities for F52 in sectors S122 and S123 in FA: results For several countries, they appear to be equivalent or almost equivalent In some countries, it is not but it can be explained
II’s Investment companies versus FA’s S122 & S123 Conclusion Conclusion Investment companies can be classified in two sectors: S122 Other monetary financial institutions, specialized in money market funds S123 Other financial intermediaries, investing in other investment funds (such as bonds, shares or real estate)
Other information included in II A II Apart from the Total non-financial assets and Detailed financial assets, II includes, for each category of investors, some information on liabilities, in particular: Total liabilities of which Net equity of households on life insurance provisions of which Net equity of households on pension funds of which Shares/units issud by investment companies directly held by households

16 Recommendation 2: The WPFS accepts the simplified classification of assets FA/II proposed in the additional Table FA/II of the present paper.
17 Recommendation 3: The WPFS accepts the classification of institutional investors FA/II proposed in the additional Table FA/II of the present paper.
